Quebec expands COVID-19 vaccination to those with chronic illnesses, disabilities | FULL

Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced on Thursday that the province would be expanding its COVID-19 vaccination campaign to those with chronic illnesses as well as those with disabilities.

Under the plan, the province is widening access to include more people under the age of 60 with chronic illnesses starting Friday.

The category includes diabetes, obesity and respiratory problems.

Prior to that, only people who were considered very high risk or requiring hospital care were able to receive a first dose. Quebecers who have intellectual or physical disabilities can also register for this first shot starting April 28.

Caregivers of eligible people are also able to book a vaccine appointment.

Dubé made the announcement in the company of Dr. Horacio Arruda, director of Quebec public health, and Daniel Paré, head of the inoculation campaign.

The latest change comes after the province dropped the minimum age requirement for the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine from 55 to 45 this week. As a result, newly eligible Montrealers have been flocking to vaccination centres.
