I was eligible to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as of mid-March. Although I was not impressed with the ClicSanté website to set an appointment, the phone option was handled properly and efficiently.
Government-run tasks are usually not great but I was pleasantly surprised with the Centre Multisports site. Greeted outside by an attendant, steered toward the registration , minimal waiting, from there seated for vaccination, a questionnaire filled out by an assistant, vaccinated by a nurse, given a certificate of my first shot and was given an appointment for the second shot there and then.
The complete process took less than one hour including a 15-minute wait after the vaccine. I am very impressed with the process and the set up.
We are lucky to live in a country with quick access to a vaccine (very few countries do) and the resources to inoculate the complete population within a year.
In times of crisis we see the nature and strength of the governments we have elected.
