On Saturday, a total of 851 people received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. No second doses were administered yesterday. A total of 9,498 doses have been administered to date. The regional breakdown data is not available today. The eligibility criteria for immunization are being expanded today to include: • home-care workers employed by a regional health authority (RHA), a RHA-contracted service provider, or a self- and family-managed care client, born on or before Dec. 31, 1960. To date, Manitoba has received a total of 22,230 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, which includes approximately 7,020 doses delivered earlier this week. There are currently about 12,500 doses of Pfizer in the province, which will be used for the remainder of this week’s immunizations as well as appointments for first- and second-dose immunizations at the Winnipeg super site this week. Next week’s shipment of the Pfizer vaccine is expected to be 9,360 doses and about one-third of that will be shipped to Brandon to launch the super site at the Keystone Centre on Jan. 18. To date, Manitoba has received 7,300 doses of Moderna. Of these, 5,300 have been allocated for First Nation immunization priorities, and regular shipments began by air and road on Jan. 7. All of the remaining Moderna doses will be used to support the immunization campaign at personal care homes that will begin tomorrow.
