QC postsecondary institutions face trailing vaccination rates

July 8, 2021
Postsecondary institutions in Quebec are attempting to address the trailing rate of vaccinations as they plan for an in-person return to school for the Fall semester. CBC reports that QC institutions will be able to have fully in-person classes once the 18-to-29-year-old age cohort reaches the 75% vaccination target, but that only 67% have received the first dose of a vaccination. If the vaccination target is not met, students will return to a hybrid model, with first-year students having priority for in-person learning. Postsecondary institutions are encouraging students to get vaccinated by organizing walk-in vaccination clinics in areas young people frequent and sending them letters emphasizing the importance of vaccination.
