June 21, 2021
Today, people who received their first dose on or before May 25 can book a second-dose appointment. On Tuesday, second-dose eligibility will expand to May 29 at 11:45 a.m.
Manitobans are strongly reminded to only book their appointment based on the date of their first dose or other provincial eligibility criteria. For more information, visit https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/eligibility-criteria.html#second-dose.
All people aged 12 and up are eligible to book their first-dose appointments.
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 1,156,966 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.
Fifteen medical clinics and pharmacies will be regional hubs to offer second-dose Astra Zeneca vaccinations. Individuals can use the online vaccine finder at https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/finder.html to find a location with available doses. Due to Pfizer supply issues from the federal government, appointments are not generally available for youth (aged 12 to 17) at this time, until more Pfizer doses become available. Young people aged 12 to 17 must continue to receive Pfizer for both doses, as this is currently the only vaccine approved for use in this age group.
Pop-up clinics have been scheduled throughout the province in June. Indigenous people can also attend an urban Indigenous clinic led by community organizations in Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and Portage la Prairie.
A complete listing and searchable map 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

This week, Manitoba is expecting a delivery of 87,750 doses of Pfizer vaccine and three shipments of Moderna totalling 240,520 doses.
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.

People who received a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Manitoba should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to update their immunization information. This email address can also be used to request other updates or corrections to a COVID-19 immunization. Individuals may also contact their local public health office with this information if needed.
Manitobans are reminded to fill out a second consent form for their second-dose appointment. To fill out and print the consent forms before your appointment, visit https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/resources.html#forms.
