The Prime Minister of the Canadian province of Quebec, Francois Legault, has proposed
the imposition of tax for all adults who refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine for non-medical reasons.

Legault said on Facebook that “despite the fact that unvaccinated adults make up 10 per cent of the population, they account for half
of the COVID-19 hospitalisations in intensive care units.

“This is an immense pressure on our health care system. Therefore, we are considering the issue of imposing health tax that will be
paid by all adults who refuse vaccination for non-medical reasons.’’

The official added that the amount of the penalty is yet to be determined, but stressed that it will be “significant.”
