1. An institution within the meaning of the Act respecting health services and social services (chapter S-4.2) or the Act respecting health services and social services for Cree Native persons (chapter S-5) that operates a centre where a professional administers a vaccine must, within 2 business days of the administration of the vaccine, release the following information to the operations manager of the vaccination registry for registration:
(1) the information referred to in section 64 of the Public Health Act (chapter S-2.2), except the information provided for in subparagraphs d, f and g of paragraph 1, subparagraphs f and i of paragraph 2, subparagraphs i, k and l of paragraph 3, the vaccinator’s unique provider number and the unique identification number of the location providing health services and social services to which the vaccinator is attached;
(2) the information referred to in section 4.
An institution that operates a centre where a health professional has, in accordance with the second paragraph of section 61 of the Act, validated a vaccination received by a person outside Québec must, within 2 business days of the validation, release the information referred to in the first paragraph, insofar as it is available, to the operations manager of the vaccination registry for registration in the vaccination registry.
The information to be released by an institution is released by means of an information asset that allows for the safe transmission of the information. The Minister informs each institution in writing of the information asset allowing for such transmission, of the centre or facility where the asset is available to the institution and of the date on which the transmission is to begin.
An institution that does not have access to an information asset as provided for in the third paragraph must release the information prescribed by the first and second paragraphs in a manner that ensures the information’s protection.
