3e The Covit-19 vaccine will be distributed to CHSLDs in Quebec from Friday. An action brought a few days ago due to an explosion at a residential center.
“Immunity is declining over time, and we’re beginning to see it in many regions: re-emergence in residential centers,” says Patricia McKinnon, director of vaccination at CIUSSS de the Capitale-Nationale.
It was the recent eruption at CHSLT Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes in the Saint-Saur district, which prompted CIUSSS to expect an injection of 3e Dose for the elderly.
Although no deaths have been reported since October 8, 11 people – including nine users – have been infected with the virus at the company.
“When the virus enters a shelter where customers are most vulnerable, it can [faire des ravages]. That is why it is important for these customers to get the third dose. “Me McKinnon.
Priority to a large number
On Friday and next week, 4,150 users of 29 CHSLDs will visit CIUSSS workers to receive their third dose.
Moderna’s vaccine was selected for this additional injection, all of which have at least two identical doses.
The most populous companies are CHSLD Yvonne-Sylvain, Saint-Antoine and Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, Quebec’s General Hospital. CHSLD Notre Dame-de-Lourdes also tops the list, but it is necessary to wait for the end of the eruption.
