COVID-19 VACCINE BULLETIN #31

Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin


January 28, 2021


Today, Manitoba received confirmation from the federal government that 12,870 fewer doses (11 trays) of the Pfizer vaccine will be shipped to the province by the end of March. This means Manitoba will receive 161,460 doses, instead of 174,330.

Even with this disruption in supply, the province expects all people who have received their first dose will still be able to get their second dose within the recommended window of 28 days.

However, several hundred second-dose appointments initially scheduled for the week of Feb. 15 may need to be rescheduled by several days in response to lower vaccine supply. The province will email or text people whose appointments will need to be rescheduled as soon as possible, although every effort is being taken to minimize the number of individuals affected. The rescheduled appointment will be within a week of the original appointment.

The timeline to complete all second-dose immunizations at personal care homes across Manitoba remains unaffected by this supply disruption. Every eligible and consenting resident will receive their second dose of the vaccine within 28 days, which is within the recommended guideline. Manitoba’s plans to allocate vaccine to First Nation partners is also unaffected. The Thompson super site will open on Feb. 1 and is using the Moderna vaccine.
