Get vaccinated! Stay vigilant!

I was concerned about sufficient COVID vaccine dosage supply for our permanent residents as it’s based on the permanent population number. CISSSO assured me that everyone receiving a vaccination in Campbell’s Bay must now show proof of residency – an address, rather than simply a postal code.

I was concerned about sufficient COVID vaccine dosage supply for our permanent residents as it’s based on the permanent population number. CISSSO assured me that everyone receiving a vaccination in Campbell’s Bay must now show proof of residency – an address, rather than simply a postal code. I’ve also been reassured we will have enough dosages of the vaccine for our residents. The government understands the reality of the Pontiac with our proximity to Ontario.
The Pontiac was very fortunate to have very few cases for most of the last 13 months. Unfortunately, COVID has now touched 11 of our 18 municipalities. The number of positive cases in the MRC Pontiac is rising quickly. We now have young children testing positive.
The weekend of April 10, I received calls about groups of people who were together and many people arriving from other regions. There is a now a lockdown in Ontario, so travel between Québec and Ontario should be for essential purposes only.
I received my vaccination last Saturday and I encourage everyone to make an appointment when your age group is called. If you’ve received your first
vaccination, you still have to take all precautions and are not completely immune.
We are all tired of these restrictions, but I thank and encourage everyone to
persevere and practice even stronger vigilance. We need to work together to cross the finish line and protect ourselves and our neighbours. Please keep the health of the Pontiac in your prayers.
