A message from the office of Jennifer Maccarone, MNA for Westmount-Saint Louis:
We are contacting you today on behalf of Jennifer Maccarone, MNA of Westmount-Saint-Louis regarding updated information on the Covid-19 vaccine campaign.
Ms. Maccarone has been communicating regularly with our CIUSSS (CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal and CIUSSS Centre-Sud). They are currently vaccinating priority group 3, Autonomous or semi-autonomous people who live in private seniors’ homes (RPAs) or in certain closed residential facilities for older adults..
As mentioned in our previous correspondence, the starting date of the public campaign, beginning with people 80 years of age or older, depends on the availability of vaccines. The estimated date of deployment is the first week of March 2021. Please consult the following website for the most up-to-date information:
The CIUSSS will be performing public vaccinations at 4 locations in our territory:
In total, between 3,600 and 7,700 doses per day will be given at these four sites. These sites, chosen for various reasons including their accessibility and capacity, will be open seven days a week, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Furthermore, the CIUSSS-Centre-ouest is looking into potentially adding an additional site to facilitate access for the citizens of Westmount—Saint-Louis.
Members of the public will soon be able to make appointments online through the Clic Santé platform or by telephone. The CIUSSS is setting up a call centre for this purpose. We will notify you once you may access these services.
In anticipation of potential needs for our seniors regarding transportation to vaccination sites, we are actively seeking volunteers who are able to drive and accompany citizens in need. If you are interested in supporting this initiative please click here.
We hope this information was useful to you and you can rest assured that we will send you updates on the vaccination timetable as we receive them. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
