Quebec expands vaccine passports to liquor, cannabis stores, with 3rd dose requirement on the way
Quebec will expand its vaccination passport system so that users will eventually be required to have three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine in order to use it, Health Minister Christian Dubé announced during a news conference Thursday.
Dubé did not provide an exact date for the change, only saying it would be made once all Quebecers have been given the chance to get a third dose.
Currently, the general population has access to a third dose if they are 50 or older. All adults will have access as of Jan. 17.
Dubé also announced that Quebecers will need to show proof that they are adequately vaccinated in order to enter the Quebec Liquor Corp. (SAQ) and government-run stores selling recreational cannabis (SQDC) as of Jan. 18.
