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.
