Eligibility

Eligibility for second doses has been expanded to include individuals who received their first dose on or before May 6. Manitobans are strongly reminded that only those eligible to book appointments based on the date of their first dose or other provincial criteria should book second-dose appointments at this time.

Additionally, all Indigenous people in Manitoba and individuals with specific health conditions are also eligible to book their second dose, as long as they meet the minimum time interval between doses. 

All people aged 12 and up are eligible to book their first-dose appointments.

Individuals can book online at Home - #ProtectMB or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222). People will need to know the date they received their first dose and the type of vaccine received. This information can continue to be accessed at Test Results - Shared Health or by calling a local public health office. A directory can be found at Public Health Offices in Manitoba | Health and Seniors Care. Note that vaccine appointments cannot be booked through public health offices.

Vaccine Administration

A total of 1,003,678 doses of vaccine have been administered in Manitoba.

People who received a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Manitoba can now contact covidimmunizationrecordsinformation@gov.mb.ca  to update that 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.

Next week, focused immunization teams will provide immunizations at the following congregate living facilities: Brandon Correctional Centre, Winnipeg Remand Centre, Women's Correctional Centre, Selkirk Mental Health Centre and Milner Ridge Correctional Centre.

Appointments

Eligible people can book appointments at super sites in Brandon, Dauphin, Gimli, Steinbach, Winnipeg (RBC Convention Centre, Leila), Thompson, Selkirk, Morden and The Pas. 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 Home - #ProtectMB. Eligible individuals can book their appointments at these sites online, or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC).

Manitobans are reminded to fill out a second consent form for their second dose appointment. This will ensure any changes in your health status can be reviewed before your second dose. Providers will have the most up-to-date information in case you are getting a different vaccine and can review any updates on allergic reactions to vaccines. To fill out and print the consent forms before your appointment, visit Province of Manitoba | Resources and Consent Forms.

Vaccine Supply and Distribution

To date, 1,154,390 doses of vaccine have been delivered to Manitoba. This includes: 
- 829,530 doses of Pfizer vaccine; 
- 233,100 doses of the Moderna vaccine; and
- 91,760 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine. 

Manitoba is expecting delivery of 87,750 doses of Pfizer next week.

Additional Information

The province has launched a new lottery that will award nearly $2 million to people who get their vaccine. For more details about the Manitoba Vaccination Lottery, visit Manitoba Vaccination Lottery - #ProtectMB.
