Canada’s Quebec working on plan to get unvaccinated residents to pay up, says premier

(Reuters) – Canada’s Quebec province is working on a plan to require unvaccinated residents to pay a “health contribution,” Premier Francois Legault said on Tuesday.

Legault said even though the province has a low proportion of unvaccinated people, they account for about 50% of those in intensive care units.

People who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons would be exempt under the proposal, Legault told reporters at a briefing.
