On Tuesday, Quebec Premier François Legault said the province is heading towards its goal of administering 50,000 doses a day.
“We’re resisting against the variants and the third wave but the battle is not over, we have to stay careful as we accelerate vaccination,” he said.
He also urged Quebecers to continue following public health guidelines, while emphasizing the importance of getting a shot.
“We have the opportunity to avoid a third wave but in order to do that, we have to follow the rules for a few weeks. No one wants to come back to a lockdown. It’s important to get the vaccine.”
The premier will be getting his first dose on Friday in Montreal and encouraged others to follow suit.
