Eligibility for additional booster shot

The National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) recently recommended a COVID-19 booster vaccine for additional groups of people who may be at increased risk of lowered protection over time. These recommendations, however, have not yet been approved by the Quebec Immunization Program (PIQ).

In keeping with Quebec government policy, we are currently vaccinating residents of long-term care facilities and private seniors' residences, seniors living in intermediate resources, family-type resources, and municipal and non-profit housing and certain people with a weakened immune system.

We expect the list of people eligible for a booster will expand soon, and we will share any updates provided by the PIQ on this page and at
