Coronavirus: Montreal mayor Plante announces vaccines on the way for homeless | FULL

CA, 14 Jan 2021
Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante along with Dr. Mylène Drouin, the city’s public health director, provided an update on the city's COVID-19 situation, as the province of Quebec remains under curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Drouin announced that some of Montreal’s homeless population will be vaccinated during an update Wednesday on the progressing second wave amid rising COVID-19 cases among those who live on the streets.

There have been 172 cases since the beginning of December 2020 among homeless Montrealers and the workers who help them, she said. There are currently eight active outbreaks and an epidemiological investigation is underway.

“These outbreaks are difficult to control,” she said.

When it comes to vaccination, Drouin didn’t provide an exact number but said doses will be given to a “small group” of homeless people starting this week.
