Over 71 per cent of West Islanders have received a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while more than 150,000 vaccines have been administered at both locations over six months.

The (CIUSSS) de l’Ouest-de-l’Île-de-Montréal says it’s shifting gears and will focus on schools and pop-up clinics in an effort to reach those who have yet to receive a shot.

The Gerry-Robertson Community Centre in Pierrefonds, the Trudeau Airport drive-thru and the Centre Sportif Dollard-St-Laurent arena remain open.
