Second vaccination rollouts are hitting some snags as residents complain about delays on social media.
Last Wednesday, the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS), issued a statement on its official Facebook page.
“If you’re having trouble getting ahead of your appointment, it’s probably due to discrepancy in personal information or missing information when making appointments,” the statement said. It then outlined three alternatives for getting the vaccine. Citizens can check clic sante’s trouble shooting service; go to an appointment free clinic; or keep their initial appointment for a second dose.
