Vaccination of young and old teenagers

Do you know when 17-year-old CEGEP students are invited for the vaccine?

Isabelle Laoi

At this very young age of 12 to 17 years old (details will be revealed this Thursday) who will be invited very soon for the vaccine, we found a 17 year old “old teenager” who is already in CEGEP, as well as a “young teenager” who is finishing 12 elementary school. So far, by the end of the school year, the focus has been on vaccination clinics in high school. So what happens to teenagers who don’t go to high school?

By email, the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) has said that a young person can be vaccinated through his school or through an appointment made by himself. […] Or through his parents or guardian ”. When the time slots are open for this category, it is therefore possible to make an appointment at the vaccination center using a teenager click Sante site.

Note that a 14-year-old can legally agree to be vaccinated and therefore make his or her appointment himself. For children 12 and 13 years of age, parental (or guardian) consent is required.

Vaccination is open to all or at the school’s open vaccination site. In fact, the MSSS dictates, “From the moment the vaccination campaign for children aged 12-17 years begins, all young people are cared for through the school environment, regardless of the school in which they live.”

The Ministries of Health and Education are developing “hybrid formulas” for vaccinating groups of students. In some cases, groups go to the vaccination center together. In other cases, the vaccination takes place at the school.

“Parents need not fear, they will be notified by the school service centers when the time comes,” the MSSS suggests.

The popularity of astrogenica

With the withdrawal of the estrogen vaccine given in the first dose, is it possible to advance beyond the second dose in those who have already received it?

Julie Dufour

After the snowfall of messages from readers who want to be able to change vaccines after receiving estrogenica, many readers raise their hands to receive it as a second dose … especially if it allows them to be fully vaccinated faster!

The reality is that the dose of estrogenica in Quebec is very low. To date almost all of the 520,000 doses received by the Province have been maintained. Quebec will receive 148,000 doses this week and the next delivery will not be long overdue. Across Canada, between 250,000 and 270,000 unused doses are spread across the country, which should be disposed of by the end of June.

This means that many Cubans who receive the first dose of estrogen are invited to receive the second dose of the messenger RNA vaccine (Pfizer or Modernna).

How do you do all this cool stuff? According to our information, individuals who receive the first dose of estrogen will be contacted by the CISSS or CIUSSS in their territory, which will be displayed with the options available to them. If necessary, appointment dates can be modified.

What does science say about the combination of the estrogenica and the mRNA vaccine? First, it is not dangerous, but temporary side effects (fatigue, headache, fever) appear to be more common in vaccinated people than in those who receive the same vaccine twice. For example, in a British com-cove study that studied this combination, 60% of those who received AZ + Pfizer reported having a headache, while 40% of those who received Pfizer twice received 40% and 30% of those who received Astrogenca twice.

But does this combination offer such effective protection? Almost the same. The com-cove study should confirm the vaccine efficacy of the combination in June.

A second dose for the “cured” of COVID-19?

In addition to our section published on May 15 on vaccine evidence for those with COVID-19, the Ministry of Health reiterates two things. First, a single dose of the vaccine was recommended for these individuals, because scientific studies have shown that the second dose “does not provide additional protection” for them. Then these people, if they want to get a second dose, can get it.

There is no risk (or contraindication) to giving two doses of the vaccine to those with COVID-19, but the risk of adverse reactions is high. After taking COVID-19, people will be able to get an appointment for a second dose after agreeing to receive a two-dose vaccine. ”

Vaccines outside Quebec: How to identify them

After our article was published on May 15, readers told us that they had succeeded in getting vaccinated abroad (especially in Florida) in their Quebec health record. Next they went to the Mass Vaccine site (especially the MIL-University of Montreal campus), where their information was recorded. MSSS indicates that this service will soon be available at some vaccination centers designated for this operation.
