For more information, visit https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/eligibility-criteria.html#second-dose. Individuals can book online at https://protectmb.ca/ or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222).  

Vaccine Administration   

A total of 1,495,356 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.    

Appointments and Walk-ins 

From July 6 to 10, the RBC, Leila, Steinbach, Selkirk and Brandon super sites will be offering extended hours of immunization, from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. RBC will continue to be by appointment only, but all of the other sites will largely be taking walk-ins, with few or very limited booked appointments during these extended hours.

Parents, caregivers or other adults who have a booked Pfizer appointment can continue to transfer their appointment to a 12- to 17-year-old youth, through the provincial call centre.  Fifteen medical clinics and pharmacies are regional hubs for AstraZeneca vaccinations. Individuals can use the online vaccine finder at https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/finder.html to find a location with available doses.   A complete listing and searchable map of all vaccine sites, including urban Indigenous clinics and pop-up clinics, is available online at https://protectmb.ca/. Eligible individuals can book their appointments at these sites online, or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC).   

Vaccine Supply and Distribution  

To date, 1,814,680 doses of vaccine have been delivered to Manitoba. This includes:    • 1,092,780 doses of the Pfizer vaccine;    • 630,140 doses of the Moderna vaccine; and   • 91,760 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.    

Additional Information   

To be considered fully immunized, individuals require two doses of vaccine. These can be the same or different brands of vaccine.  Individuals who are fully vaccinated can now request a digital or physical immunization card.
