Réseau FADOQ is asking Quebecers to sign a petition demanding that the Quebec Government implement a shingles vaccination program in the 2020–2021 fiscal year.
The online petition is on the National Assembly website.
For many years, Réseau FADOQ has been calling for shingles to be included in Quebec’s immunization program for people age 65 and over, just like the pneumonia vaccine. The shingles vaccine should be administered to seniors free of charge.
Last February, Réseau FADOQ welcomed the unanimous adoption in Quebec’s National Assembly of a motion to include shingles in Quebec’s immunization program for people age 65 and over.
Réseau FADOQ is committed to monitoring this issue closely.
