Quebec’s health minister says 102,700 COVID-19 vaccinations were given in the province Thursday, the highest daily number to date.
Christian Dubé says the province also set a daily record for vaccination appointments, with 272,000 bookings made.
Dube says in a Twitter post the province is ready to ramp up vaccinations when vaccine deliveries permit, and he calls the response from Quebecers “exceptional.”
The province has started accepting appointments for those 35 and older and says all adults will be eligible by the end of next week.
During a briefing Thursday, Dube said the province has vaccinated 40 per cent of the population with at least one dose.
He also said that beginning May 13, Quebec will begin offering electronic proof of vaccination.
