Statement from Premier Brian Pallister on Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine

This morning I received my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, administered by Dr. Brent Roussin, Manitoba’s chief provincial public health officer, at Winnipeg’s immunization super site, located in the RBC Convention Centre.

I am proud to do my part to help keep my family and my community safe from COVID-19. Vaccines are safe, effective and they help save lives. I encourage all Manitobans to roll up their sleeves and get a vaccine as soon as you are eligible.

I want to commend Manitoba’s Vaccine Implementation Task Force and its dedicated staff and volunteers who are undertaking a monumental challenge to provide life-saving vaccines to as many Manitobans as possible, quickly and safely.
