Argenteuil residents under 60 with high-risk conditions, and essential workers now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination

As of April 14, the Québec department of health and social services is allowing people under the age of 60 considered to be at very high risk of complications from COVID-19, as well as essential workers in high-risk environments to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in the Laurentides region, which includes the MRC d’Argenteuil.

People under 60 considered at very high risk of complications from COVID-19

Under the recommendation of an attending physician, vaccination of people under 60 years of age considered at very high risk of complications from COVID-19 will occur in specific circumstances, namely:

  • People who are currently hospitalized with a condition that puts them at risk of complications of COVID-19
  • Patients in hospital for renal dialysis, transplant recipients and to those currently being treated for cancer
  • People who must receive a dose of vaccine under the supervision of an allergist in a hospital environment.

Pharmacists will also be able to help reach people with these conditions who cannot be vaccinated in a hospital environment.

For full details, see the detailed list of chronic diseases and health problems and vaccination instructions for essential workers in environments at high risk of outbreaks, and adults under the age of 60 who provide essential services and who work in high-risk places, go to www.Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID  to make an appointment.
