FAQ – COVID-19 Vaccination

How does it work to make an appointment to receive the vaccine?

The population, according to the established prioritization list, must register via Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID, which is the easiest and fastest way to make an appointment. It is also possible to call 1 877 644-4545 for support.

For people vaccinated outside of Quebec, how can they register their vaccination with the Registre de vaccination du Québec and receive a second dose, if necessary?

To register the vaccination with the Registre de vaccination du Québec, the people in question must make an appointment at one of our vaccination sites through Québec.ca/vaccinCOVID. For those who have not received their 2nd dose, an appointment will be given at the same time.

Important, once at the vaccination sites, you must present an ID and a proof of vaccination issued by the country where the doses were administered. No registration can be done without this written proof.

Please note that it is possible to make a single appointment for more than one person (e.g. a couple returning from a trip and who have both been vaccinated). However, the proof of vaccination will only be sent to the email address indicated in Clic Santé.
