COVID-19 VACCINE BULLETIN #96



Eligibility  

Effective today, all people are now eligible to make their second dose appointment.  The date of the appointment must be at least 28 days after the first vaccination. 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).  

Vaccine Administration   

A total of 1,261,682 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.    

Appointments   

Parents, caregivers or other adults who have a booked Pfizer appointment can now transfer their appointment to a 12 to 17 year old youth through the provincial call centre.

On Monday, June 28, the RBC Convention Centre and Leila supersites will extend their hours to offer more immunizations.  Appointments are being booked on this date from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.

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 are 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 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 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).   

Vaccine Supply and Distribution  

To date, 1,639,290 doses of vaccine have been delivered to Manitoba. This includes:   
•    1,005,030 doses of the Pfizer vaccine;   
•    542,500 doses of the Moderna vaccine; and  
•    91,760 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.    

Manitoba is expecting 87,750 doses of Pfizer and 178,080 doses of Moderna next week.   

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. For more information, visit https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/immunization-record.html#immunization-cards.  People who received a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Manitoba should contact covidimmunizationrecordsinformation@gov.mb.ca  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.
