Canadian Province Quebec To Charge Unvaccinated Residents A Health Tax

La Reserva Federal de EE. UU. está preparada para subir sus tasas

The Canadian province of Quebec is to charge a health tax to residents who are not vaccinated against COVID-19.   Quebec, which has seen the highest number of COVID-related deaths in Canada, is currently struggling with a surge in cases.   The premier on Tuesday announced that it would be the first in the nation to financially penalise the unvaccinated.   Only about 15% of Quebec residents are not vaccinated, but they make up about half of all hospital cases.   Premier Francois Legault said during a news conference that people who have not received their first dose of the vaccine will have to pay a contribution.   The fee has not yet been decided, but Mr. Legault says it will be significant.
