COVID-19 VACCINE BULLETIN #95
Province of Manitoba Media Bulletin
June 23, 2021
Today, individuals who received their first dose on or before May 31 are eligible to book their second dose. Second dose eligibility will expand tomorrow at 11:45 a.m. to include people who received their first dose on or before June 6.
Manitobans must book their appointment based on the date of their first dose or other provincial eligibility criteria. For more information, visit 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 protectmb.ca or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222).
A total of 1,202,971 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.
Parents or caregivers who have a booked Pfizer appointment can now transfer their appointment to their 12 to 17 year old child, through the provincial call centre. This is being done in response to delayed Pfizer shipments to Manitoba, since only this vaccine is currently approved for youth.
All supersites, except RBC Convention Centre, are now offering walk-in appointments. The number of walk-ins may vary by day and by site, but are approximately 10 per cent of all doses available. It is important to note that a limited number of walk-ins available on a daily basis. Sites will continue to prioritize first-dose immunizations for walk-ins when possible.
Fifteen medical clinics and pharmacies are regional hubs for second-dose AstraZeneca vaccinations. Individuals can use the online vaccine finder at https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/finder.html to find a location with available doses.
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 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).
