Walk-ins welcome at Estrie vaccination centres

All CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS vaccination centres now accept walk-ins for the first and second doses of vaccine against COVID-19.
To avoid showing up outside of walk-in hours or going to a centre that has administered all available doses in a given day, updates will be posted on the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS website Monday to Friday at 11 a.m. and again at 3 p.m. to provide the most recent information available. The updates will be done at noon on weekends.
According to the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS, making an appointment remains the easiest way to get a vaccine. Thousands of appointments for the first and second doses are still available. Those who have difficulty booking an appointment online can call 1-877-644-4545 for telephone support.
The entire population, including youth aged 12 to 17, can now advance their second dose as long as there is a minimum of four weeks between the two doses. The health authority strongly recommends that people move up their appointment to be vaccinated during the summer and not in the fall.
It is now recommended for anyone who has had COVID-19 to receive a second dose if they wish to travel. People with COVID-19 can also receive a dose of the vaccine four weeks after their diagnosis.
