    Administration of the 2nd dose

    The 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine is necessary. It provides optimal protection in the longer term. Administering the 2nd dose is important and will be offered to everyone. Although a shorter delay between the 1st and 2nd dose is accepted, public health recommends an interval of 4 weeks for the 2nd dose of Pfizer or Moderna and 8 weeks for the 2nd dose of AstraZeneca.

    Student Vaccination (CEGEPs and universities)

    As part of the campaign “Your student card; a pass to get vaccinated! ",  students from all higher education institutions (CEGEPs and universities) in the region are invited to come without an appointment. A course has been specially designed for them.

    Anyone who presents their valid student card at the reception of the Laval University vaccination center, located in the Desjardins pavilion, can receive their first or second dose of vaccine immediately 7 days a week, from 6 a.m. to 8 : 30 p.m.

    This initiative of the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale, in collaboration with Laval University, targets young people aged 18 to 34*. By meeting their need for immediacy, they will be able to receive their two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine quickly and thus be able to experience a more normal back-to-school period.

    Please note: This offer is valid for all students, including international students.

    *People of all ages are accepted if they present their valid student card.
