Vaccination against COVID-19

The COVID-19 vaccination campaign is underway in Quebec and follows the recommendations of the Quebec Immunization Committee. To protect yourself and others, we encourage you to get the vaccine if you are eligible. Your health is our top priority.

Booking a COVID-19 vaccine appointment


Vaccination is done gradually. Only those in the currently eligible groups can be vaccinated. To find out if you are eligible, visit the website of the Quebec Government regularly. You must make an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. To register, go to the Clic Santé platform, then follow the on-screen instructions.

Taking care of yourself and others


Remember: As long as a sufficiently large part of the population has not been vaccinated, we will have to continue to follow the health measures in place (wearing masks, washing hands, physical distancing, restrictions related to gatherings, etc.).


Travel insurance


Will I be covered for COVID-19 while travelling if I haven’t received the vaccine?

Yes. Travel insurance covers COVID-19 even if you have not received the COVID-19 vaccine, as long as you meet the requirements for pre-existing medical conditions. In accordance with health authority guidelines, we strongly recommend that you avoid all non-essential travel outside your province of residence until further notice.

Does travel insurance cover the COVID-19 vaccine?

No. Preventive care such as vaccines is not covered by your travel insurance. It only covers urgent medical care required following an accident or sudden illness. In accordance with the recommendations of health authorities, we advise you to avoid all non-essential travel until further notice.

Does my travel insurance cover the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine?

Yes. Urgent care necessary to treat side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine will be covered, as long as you meet the pre-existing condition requirements. In accordance with health authority guidelines, we strongly recommend that you avoid all non-essential travel outside your province of residence until further notice.


Health insurance


Will receiving the COVID-19 vaccine or not affect my health insurance coverage or my pending claims?
