اخبارالعرب 24-كندا:الأربعاء 13 أكتوبر 2021 12:03 مساءً Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé is giving health-care workers 30 more days to get adequately vaccinated, despite repeatedly saying the hard deadline, originally set for this Friday, wouldn't be moved.
Health-care workers now have until Nov. 15 to get the necessary shots and avoid being suspended without pay.
Dubé says 96 per cent of health workers have received at least one vaccine dose, but with 21,900 workers still not adequately vaccinated, the health system wouldn't be able to handle losing so much staff.
He said the decision to push back the vaccination deadline for health-care workers was "difficult", but one that was necessary to avoid "hitting a wall" when it came to providing health-care services to Quebecers.
"I have the responsibility to protect the health-care network of Quebecers," Dubé said. "The risk right now is too high, and it would be irresponsible to roll the dice with the health of Quebecers."
This is a developing story. More to come.
