Quebec government considering banning unvaccinated from grocery stores, pharmacies

The Canadian province of Quebec is considering banning unvaccinated individuals from so-called “essential stores” that also offer delivery.


The Quebec government is considering banning unvaccinated individuals from nearly every store which also offers home delivery, including grocery stores and pharmacies.

Since September 1st, 2021, individuals who have decided not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine are banned from restaurants, public events, and numerous activities.

As of January 18, 2022, the government will also ban the unvaccinated from liquor stores and cannabis stores.

Despite the many restrictions, the government is considering extending the vaccine passport to essential stores which also offer home delivery, including retail stores, pharmacies, and grocery stores.

Mainstream media narratives have been blaming the 10% of unvaccinated Quebeckers for the recent increase in cases in the province, despite mounting evidence that the vaccine does not prevent COVID-19 transmission.

The banning of unvaccinated from food retail and pharmacies would mark an unprecedented turn in discriminatory measures imposed under the umbrella of COVID-19. 

The Quebec government has also admitted that the vaccine passport will require three doses in the near future, meaning they now have to convince vaccine-hesitant individuals not only to get vaccinated once but to adhere to a membership-like subscription to seasonal boosters, regardless of their risk profile.
