Quebec Health Minister Christian Dube says he hopes to coerce unvaccinated people to get their first doses by bringing in new proof-of-vaccination rules at liquor and cannabis stores starting January 18th.

Dube says more services will soon be added to the list for proof of vaccination requirements.

He also says the health system is missing about 20-thousand workers who have been infected or exposed to the disease, and that the government is working with unions to find more staff to care for up to 2,500 COVID-19 patients.

A provincial health-care research institute says that within two weeks, there could be more than three-thousand COVID-19 patients in regular hospital beds and another 400 in intensive care, higher than at any previous point in the pandemic.
