How to get vaccinated

Throughout Québec, people 85 years of age or older (born in or before 1936) can make appointments to get vaccinated.

If you have difficulty making an appointment online, ask your loved ones for help or consult the COVID-19 Vaccination Registration Procedure document (in French only) (PDF 0.93 Mb), which will guide you step by step in making an appointment. A video of the procedure (in French only) (MP4 25 Mb) is also available.

If needed, you can get help by calling 1-877-644-4545 (toll-free line from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday or 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday).

Please note that an appointment is mandatory and that the planned order of vaccination in your region must be followed.

A person who accompanies a person who is 85 years of age or older to a vaccination appointment may get the vaccine at the same time if they meet the following criteria:

  • They are 70 years of age or older;
  • They provide support to their loved one who is over 85 years of age 3 or more days a week.

Only one accompanying person can get vaccinated per person over 85 years of age. They must make an appointment on the registration of the person over 85 (online or over the phone).

COVID-19 vaccination is being done in stages and is reserved for people in priority groups for the moment.

If you are not part of the group that is being vaccinated, do not call or show up to get vaccinated. You will be informed at the appropriate time when your age group can start making appointments.
