Beginning November 16, residents of the Laurentides region of Québec, which includes Argenteuil, who are aged 80 and over who are living at their own home will be able to make an appointment to receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Individuals are eligible if six months or more since the administration of the last dose has passed.
“Although many people in this age group have already received two doses of the vaccine, experts recommend a booster dose to increase vaccine efficacy in order to avoid developing complications if they catch COVID-19,” said CISSS des Laurentides health authority President and CEO Rosemonde Landry.
To make an appointment online, visit Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID or use the mobile application NotifVAX. For those who do not have access to the Internet or who find it difficult to use it, call 1-877 644-4545. Relatives are encouraged to help seniors to make appointments online. A free shuttle service is also available for people with reduced mobility or no other means of transportation. To access that service, call 1 866 495-5833.
Anyone with questions about vaccination against COVID-19 can call and make an appointment to speak with a CISSS des Laurentides health professional by emailing [email protected] or by calling 1 866 495-5833.
