Province and Red River College partner to protect Manitobans, launch new micro-credential course for COVID-19 immunizers
As part of its plan to protect Manitobans against COVID-19, the province is partnering with Red River College (RRC) to ensure people who will administer the COVID-19 vaccine have the opportunity to upgrade or extend their skills with a new micro-credential, Premier Brian Pallister and Fred Meier, president and CEO, Red River College, announced today.
“Our government’s number one priority in the face of this pandemic is to protect our most vulnerable Manitobans, and as early as next week, we will start delivering life-saving vaccinations to our front-line health-care workers in our critical units,” said Pallister. “Manitoba’s health-care workers are already an integral part of our COVID-19 response and we are looking for more people to step forward and join ‘Team Manitoba’. This new micro-credential will help ensure those hired to administer the vaccine can upgrade their skills if they need it, so they can be ready to vaccinate safely and quickly.”
