The COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal will close its doors on November 25 due to the “stabilization of the epidemiological situation”, a decision announced a few hours after the launch of an advertisement to encourage Quebecers to pick up their vaccine.
Opened during the first massive vaccination campaign against COVID-19, the Olympic Stadium clinic was still receiving patients with or without an appointment, while the one set up at the Palais des Congrès had ceased its activities last February.
Residents of eastern Montreal can, however, be vaccinated in other clinics by making an appointment on the Clic Santé portal, said the Integrated University Health and Social Services Center (CIUSSS) of the East of -Island of Montreal.
This news, announced late Wednesday afternoon by the CIUSSS, however, coincides with the launch of the Quebec government’s new advertisement to encourage Quebecers to take their booster dose before the holidays.
The Minister of Health, Christian Dubé, also made recommendations in the same direction during a press briefing held in the morning.
