CLSC Metro *update*
Our CIUSSS has confirmed the CLSC Metro vaccination site will be open exceptionally for the weeks of June 21 and 28 to administer second doses to residents who have received their first dose at this location. We are pleased that our discussions with the CIUSSS regarding CLSC Metro have been successful, and that they reconsidered their decision to close, which will better accommodate our residents. We apologize for any stress this may have caused and sincerely hope no further changes are forthcoming.
Change of appointment date for second doses *new*
As of June 7, residents will be able to move up their date of their appointments for a second dose on Clic Santé or by calling 514-644-4545. Please consult the calendar below for the complete list of dates (unfortunately, this calendar which was provided by the government is not available in English).
Please note that when you make a new appointment to advance your second dose, the previous appointment date will automatically be cancelled. Your new appointment will be made at the same vaccination center as your first dose and you will receive the same type of vaccine.

From May 25 to June 23: Vaccination at a mass vaccination site with a parent or alone for children aged 14 years and over. 50% of the spots in the evening and on the weekends will be available for youth and their families.
From June 7 to 1
- Vaccinations of school at a mass vaccination site: Block of hours offered to schools at one of the mass-vaccination sites on our territory.

Back to School Plan 2021 *new*
All students will be back at school full-time for the next school year (preschool, elementary, high school, adult education and vocational training), if 75% of the population aged 12 and over have been vaccinated, if a majority of children aged 12-17 years old have received both doses and if the epidemiological conditions are stable.
Here is the school organisation to be expected if all conditions listed above are met:
- Normal school organization, without restrictions requiring stable class groups;
- No procedural masks or face coverings required for students or staff;
- Full educational services (including special pedagogical projects and school outings);
- Additional support measures for vulnerable students or those with academic delays;
- Resumption of extracurricular activities;
- School transportation under normal rules and without physical distancing restrictions;
- Cafeterias and lunchrooms organized as usual.
This plan is expected to be updated in August.
