Scotiabank Arena to host mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic for young kids Dec. 12
The Scotiabank Arena will host one of Canada’s largest vaccination clinics for young children on Wednesday, Dec. 12 as part of the government’s initiative to address COVID-19.
The clinic, which will be led by Health Canada and will serve families at the ages of 8 months to 11 years, will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
Children will be vaccinated against six types of COVID-19, including two versions, one of them containing the new swine flu vaccine. Two vaccinations per child will be performed, with a maximum of six children per family allowed. If a family doesn’t have children between the ages of 8 and 11, it will be offered a one-on-one vaccination appointment.
It’s one of the ways children in families with children between the ages of 8 and 11 in the Montreal region can be spared the strain of having to travel to a clinic across multiple provinces.
The clinic will offer a number of interventions to help parents make wise choices about their children’s vaccination.
There will be free flu shots.
It’s a rare opportunity, both for families and children, to get shots without travelling.

More than any other country, we are behind the
