COVID-19 vaccine bulletin #6
As more COVID-19 vaccine is delivered to Manitoba in in the coming weeks, the province will expand eligibility criteria to help protect more health-care workers and those most at risk of serious illness from the virus. These adjustments will include progressively immunizing a broader range of health-care workers, residents of personal care homes and elderly Manitobans.
The eligibility criteria for next week’s immunization clinic will remain broadly unchanged, based on vaccine supply, to include health-care workers who have direct patient contact in:
• critical care;
• acute care;
• long-term care, including personal care homes; or
• a COVID-19 immunization clinic or testing site (expanded to include testing sites).
