COVID-19 vaccine bulletin #4

More than 1,200 eligible health-care workers have booked an appointment to be immunized against COVID-19 this week. Manitoba has been able to expand the number of available immunization appointments to more than 1,300 from 900 because immunizers have consistently been able to draw six doses of vaccine from each vial, instead of the expected five.

The phone line will remain open until all appointments are booked. Individuals eligible for immunization are health-care workers whose work involves direct contact with patients and meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • work in critical care units, born on or before Dec. 31, 1980;
  • work in long-term care facilities, born on or before Dec. 31, 1962;
  • work in acute care facilities, born on or before Dec. 31, 1960; or
  • be assigned to COVID-19 immunization clinics.
