The 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine is necessary:
- it reduces the risk of acquiring and transmitting COVID-19;
- it increases protection rate of the vaccine;
- it provides optimal protection in the longer term;
- it will provide a return to normalcy in our schools and centres.
One week after receiving the second dose you will be adequately protected.
Please be sure to check the appointment date for the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on the back of the confirmation slip your child received during their visit at the vaccination centre. Since the date of the second dose will occur before the start of the school year, parents should ensure that they go to a vaccination centre on their own with their child on the date and place indicated on the slip.
For schools in Montérégie-Est (Harold Sheppard, Boucherville Elementary, St. Mary’s, Courtland Park International, Mount Bruno, Mountainview and Cedar Street), please click here to refer to the letter from the CISSS Montérégie-Est to make an appointment.
We also invite you to stay informed on the evolution of Public Health recommendations on the vaccination of young people during the summer. New recommendations could be issued.
The second dose of the vaccine is the key to a safe and stimulating back-to-school. Thank you for your valuable collaboration.
Have a great summer!
