Many were waiting at the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield clinic before it opened on Saturday, which surprised a team of vaccinators on site.

“We have given over a thousand coupons so that people can come back at certain times, and prevent people from having to wait for hours,” said Jade Saint-Jean, spokeswoman for CISSS de la Monterogy-est East. “We were a little surprised by the positive response of the population to this appeal, which is positive,” she said.

Vouchers are still being distributed today to allow citizens to receive a second dose of estrogenica. Additional staff were also hired for the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield Clinic to meet the demand.

Jade St. Jean said the vaccine was progressing smoothly on Sunday. “We are happy to see the enthusiasm of the people,” said a spokesman for the CISSS de la Monteragi-est.

There are 1250 doses available at the Olympic Stadium today. CIUSSS de l’Est-de-l’Île-de-Montréal therefore invites those who received the first dose of estrogen before April 3 to come and receive their second injection.

According to a spokeswoman for the CIUSSS du Center-sud-de-l-de-Montreal, Melissa Leville, a similar scenario occurs at the Palais des Congress, which enjoys a “slightly less busy” day.

AstraZeneca’s 681 walk-in doses were held Saturday at the Convention Center. 263 vaccines were given instead of 1:47 pm on Sunday. Currently, there is no queue to receive a dose without an appointment.
