Access to health and social services facilities: full vaccination mandatory by October 15

By mid-October, anyone wishing to enter health and social services facilities across Quebec, including those in CIUSSS West-Central Montreal, will be required to produce their vaccinal passport.

To meet this condition, a person must have received their first dose by September 10 and their second dose by October 8.

This policy will apply to all employees (in clinical and administrative positions), caregivers and visitors. Treatment will continue to be provided to unvaccinated patients and clients, but if a patient arrives for an appointment in the company of an unvaccinated caregiver, only the patient will be allowed to enter the facility.

Available sites

After having administered 125,000 doses there over the past six months, the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal recently closed its mass vaccination site at the Bill-Durnan Arena.

Still available:

  • Décarie Square, 6900 Décarie Boulevard
    Open daily from 8:00 to 19:30
    Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca (second dose only) are available with or without an appointment
  • Parc-Extension vaccination site, 7101 du Parc Avenue
    Open daily from 8:00 to 19:30
    Pfizer and Moderna are available with or without an appointment

Vaccination passports

Services deemed non-essential by the Quebec government are now accessible only to those who are fully vaccinated and can produce a vaccine passport, which takes the form of a QR code.

The QR code can be used with or without the Vaxicode government app. It needs only to be shown. It is emailed to all those who have been vaccinated twice.

Residents uncertain about how to download their code can call 514 644-4545 for help.

Residents who are unable to download QR codes on their own and prefer not to use the phone service can also visit one of the permanent vaccination sites at Décarie Square or Parc-Extension to have their proof printed on the spot.

Booster shots

Starting in September, a small number of people whose immune system is compromised or are on dialysis are eligible to have a booster shot as long as four weeks have passed since they received their second dose. Please note that the eligibility criteria for the booster shot is very strict.
