Covid restrictions at cannabis and liquor stores in the province of Quebec, Canada, have caused a large increase in the amount of people making appointments for Covid vaccinations.

The Health Minister for Quebec reported the number of people applying for vaccines has risen sharply in the last week.

Health Minister Christian Dubé said numbers of those applying for vaccines has risen from 1,5000 to more than 6,000.

Back in October 2018, the use of cannabis for recreational purposes became legal in Canada under the Cannabis Act.

Canada’s Health minister also thanked those who rushed to medical institutions to get their vaccines.

Currently, more than 50% of people hospitalised in Canada are non-vaccinated.
