Amid worrying new outbreaks of covid-19 and pressure from advocates, Montreal this month began vaccinating some of the city’s homeless, members of a group that is chronically neglected around the world and acutely vulnerable to the coronavirus.

Nearly 400 homeless people and 206 staff members who work with them have been vaccinated since the program got underway Jan. 15, Mylène Drouin, Montreal’s public health director, told reporters Friday. More doses will be rolled out to the city’s shelters in the coming days.
