COVID-19 VACCINE BULLETIN #97



From Wednesday, June 30 to Sunday, July 4, the Leila super site in Winnipeg will be offering walk-in Pfizer doses for youth aged 12 to 17.  Approximately 330 doses will be available daily. In anticipation of significant demand, individuals in line will be given a colour-coded ticket, which will identify a time-slot later the same day when they will be able to get their vaccine. The Leila super site will begin giving youth vaccines at 9 a.m. and the latest walk-in is expected to be scheduled at around 3:30 p.m. daily.

All super sites are now booking Pfizer appointments for the end of July.

Eligibility 

All people aged 12 and up are now eligible to make their first or second-dose appointment. The date of the second appointment must be at least 28 days after the first vaccination. For more information, visit https://manitoba.ca/covid19/vaccine/eligibility-criteria.html#second-dose. 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 1,329,689 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.  
 
Appointments  

Parents, caregivers or other adults who have a booked Pfizer appointment can continue to transfer their appointment to a 12 to 17-year-old youth, through the provincial call centre. 
 
All super sites, 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 of all vaccine sites, including urban Indigenous clinics and pop-up clinics, 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 

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

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 complete the e-form at https://forms.gov.mb.ca/covid-immunization-record-request/ to update their immunization information. This e-form can also be used to request other updates or corrections to a COVID-19 immunization.  Individuals may also contact their local public health office for assistance, 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.
