Megaphone trucks to encourage 55+ to get AstraZeneca vaccine
Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé announced today that “crier trucks” will be circulating in some neighbourhoods in Montreal this weekend to encourage people over 55 to get the AstraZeneca vaccine, with or without an appointment.
“This weekend in Montreal, more than 20K doses of AZ are available with and without an appointment. I asked the network to make targeted interventions in certain neighbourhoods. EX: West Island and Côte-des-Neiges. A Crier Truck will announce the opening of mobile clinics in several languages.”—Christian Dubé
2/2Je rappelle que AZ est une façon pour les 55+ d’accélérer leur vaccination.Cette opération nous a permis de vacciner plus rapidement 160K personnes, dont 22K à Mtl.Nous sommes en attente de la décision de la santé publique pour étendre l’âge de l’administration du AZ.— Christian Dubé (@cdube_sante) April 16, 2021
Megaphones to encourage 55+ to get the AstraZeneca vaccine in Montreal this weekend
Yesterday Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante expressed concern over the glut of unfilled appointments and quiet walk-in clinics in the city.
The message from all levels of government — and Health Canada, which confirmed again this week that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe despite a rare side effect — is, to paraphrase, get the fucking shot!
