Vaccination from 6 months to 4 years: 558 doses administered

Since Monday, July 25, children from 6 months to 4 years old can receive a dose of the vaccine against COVID-19. As of yesterday, at the end of the day, 558 children in this age group received a first dose of the vaccine and some 6,000 appointments had been booked.

Within the previous category, ages 5-11, approximately 433,642 children have received the first dose and approximately 327,000 children are vaccinated for the second dose to date.

Remember that this is the last age group to have obtained authorization from Health Canada for vaccination. The federal agency gave the green light on July 14 to Moderna’s Spikevax vaccine for toddlers.

According to the Committee on Immunization of Quebec (CIQ), three injections will be necessary for immunosuppressed children, while only one will suffice for those who have already contracted the disease.

Vaccination data

In all, in Quebec, 20,287,219 first and second doses of vaccine have been administered with nearly 6,900 inoculated in the last 24 hours, according to figures from the Ministry of Health and Social Services.

In Montreal, this figure rises to a total of 4,970,209 doses administered.
