The company is providing a vaccination hub in the François Leclerc Industrial Park in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, an area west of Quebec City. Biscuits Leclerc and other partners from industrial parks are lending a hand to support the region’s vaccination efforts.
"We are delighted to make part of our infrastructure available—namely, our gymnasium, which is large enough to accommodate the required resources. Our family business is 116 years old this year; of course, this means that my family members have weathered a number of crises, including the Spanish flu pandemic. Today, we are taking the action that was clearly needed to contribute to the community's well-being and speed up vaccinations against the pandemic that has afflicted us for more than a year," says Denis Leclerc, President of the Biscuits Leclerc Ltd.
Biscuits Leclerc has committed to covering the costs of its vaccination hub, including all the clinical teams needed to reach the goal of vaccinating 15,000 people (30,000 doses) in 90 days.
