COVID Vaccination in Listuguj

The Listuguj Community Health Services has been offering COVID Vaccinations to the community of Listuguj since the beginning of February 2021. Due to the demand, resources and vaccine expiration limitations, Listuguj Health Services will no longer be administering COVID Vaccinations to the adult population of Listuguj. However, children 12-17 years old who received their first dose from the Listuguj Health Center will be contacted for their second dose.

Vaccines are currently being offered by the CISSS and pharmacies in our region, making vaccination readily accessible to our population. Walk-in Clinics will be held in Pointe-à-la-Croix over the next two weeks. We encourage any community members who wish to receive a first or second dose to do so at these clinics. Both Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be available. Please refer to the following press release for more details.

In Good Health,

Listuguj Community Health Services
