Pharmacies located on the territory of the city of Gaspé will soon offer vaccination for COVID-19.
Health Minister Christian Dubé announced on Tuesday an agreement with the Quebec Association of Owner Pharmacists to provide community vaccination clinics in the province.
3 pharmacies in Gaspé and one in Rivière-au-Renard will offer this service free of charge.
Martin Gagnon, one of the pharmacists who own Uniprix, specifies that pharmacists must first have received training to administer the vaccine.
For the moment there is no known date for the start of the vaccination, but one of the owners of Jean Coutu in Gaspé, pharmacist Stéphanie Caron, specifies that the population will have to reserve a time slot through the site of the Government of Quebec.
Pharmacies will follow public health vaccination guidelines and proceed according to the same age categories.
It is Moderna’s vaccine that will be used by pharmacies.
