    Quebec health minister Christian Dubé along with other health officials, are expected to provide an update on the COVID-19 pandemic Tuesday afternoon.

    Quebec’s mass vaccination campaign against COVID-19 began in earnest in the Montreal area Monday with long lines and grumbling from some seniors upset at the wait times to get a first injection.

    Hundreds of people, many holding walkers or in wheelchairs, waited in lines inside Montreal’s Olympic Stadium; some were discouraged, others were angry.

    “It’s a catastrophe,” Jean-Yves Plourde, 75, said moments after being vaccinated against the virus that has killed more than 10,000 people in the province, mostly seniors. Plourde said his appointment was for 11:45 a.m. but he wasn’t vaccinated until 1:20 p.m.

    “For the elderly, it seems to me that this is not a nice way to act,” he said. Another man in line nearby commented: “This is badly organized.”

    Quebec reported 613 new cases and six additional deaths linked to the novel coronavirus on Monday.
