Quebec to Vaccinate 500,000 with Corporate Pole Initiative

The Minister of Health and Social Services, Christian Dubé, announces that several business COVID-19 vaccination centers will open in the coming weeks, in addition to those that have already started their activities.


For the first time, in Quebec, companies are called upon to contribute to mass vaccination to fight COVID-19. The goal is to vaccinate at least 500,000 Quebecers in these corporate vaccination poles.
