Quebec is reporting 1,217 new cases of COVID-19 today and a 22-patient jump in hospitalizations.

Health officials say 716 people are in hospital — the first time since mid-February the number of COVID-19-related hospitalizations has risen above 700. They say 178 people are in intensive care, a rise of one from the day prior.

Officials are also reporting six more deaths attributed to the novel coronavirus, including one that took place within the past 24 hours.

The province says 54,410 doses of vaccine were administered Tuesday, for a total of 2,503,910.

Earlier on Wednesday, lineups were reported at some walk-in vaccine sites in the province as Quebecers 45 and older became eligible to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine. It had previously been available to people 55 and over.

Quebec has reported a total of 340,397 cases of COVID-19 and 10,838 deaths linked to the virus.
