Children 12 to 17 years of age were vaccinated Before the end of June
Health Minister Christian Dubey said young people who receive the first dose of the vaccine in schools “by the end of June” should get a second injection by the time the fall begins. If necessary, students should be able to benefit from “some relaxation” when classes resume, let Horacio Aruda hover, national director of public health.
Depending on the epidemiological situation, it remains to be seen whether mandatory wearing of face covering is still practiced in school. It is possible to vaccinate teenagers who work in day camps because they are considered essential workers.
The second dose before
Those with immunity are eligible for their vaccine booster earlier than expected, i.e. within four weeks between two doses. The dr Arruda this week sent instructions to hospitals and pharmacists to back up appointments. The administration of the second dose is already taking place in the residences of CHSLDs and private seniors. The second dose can be brought forward to other categories. “Because we have the vaccine, we will shorten the break,” Health Minister Christian Dubey assured.
It is not possible to kiss Amma
Even if your mother received the first dose of the vaccine, collecting with other balloons to mark Mother’s Day this weekend is still forbidden. “The best gift we can give our mother is health,” the doctor stressed.r Although the risk of contamination after receiving the vaccine is low, it is rare to recall that it is very real. “I know very well how much we want to be together as a family […] But that is not yet possible. ”
A plan inspired Saskatchewan
Premier Franకోois Legalt suggested to his health minister that he be inspired by Saskatchewan’s deconstruction plan to specify as soon as possible when meetings would be allowed. “I sent Scott Moe’s plan [son homologue saskatchewanais] “I want the same,” Mr. Legalt said to Christian Dubois and I. Saskatchewan’s plan proposes to facilitate health measures in three stages, once the age (70%) vaccination targets have been reached.
“There are people who tell me: ‘If we had four families and all of us vaccinated, when would we be able to party at home?’ It has to be planned, we have to go that far, “Mr. Legalt said.” We’re working with the D team to bring something solid.r Mr Dubey said he would like to draw inspiration from “the best plans in the world”.
