The agency said that, before making an appointment, people should call Info-Santé at “811” and choose  “Pediatric line 0-17 years,” or to consult with a pharmacist.

At the 811 phone service, a teams are dedicated to evaluating specific needs of pediatric patients.

At this point, if it’s determined the child’s condition requires a medical evaluation and they do not have a family doctor, an appointment is made by calling 819-966-6201, or 1-833-966-6201 or on the Rendez-vous santé Québec (RVSQ) website.

Medical examinations will be done Monday through Friday by a team of emergency physicians.
