Since the announcement by Dr. Boileau, with the kids and to sort out the booster doses, we had a boost today [vendredi] and there are websites [où ça a] quadruple. We’ll see next week, but there’s been a big spike in appointments. We see that the virus has not taken a vacationspecified Marc Thibeault in an interview with Telejournal Saguenay–Lac Saint Jean.
the CIUSSSexpects the number of appointments booked to continue to increase in the coming weeks. About 40% of the regional population received neither of the two available booster doses.

It’s pretty quiet. We have about fifty appointments for next week. We have made 1000 appointments per week available for the next three weekssaid Mr. Thibeault.
