The COVID-19 Vaccine Helps Protect Manitobans

Last updated January 15, 2021

Manitoba's first COVID-19 immunization clinic launched on December 16, 2020 and immunized 900 health care workers. Over the coming months, this will become the largest immunization campaign in the province’s history and the next step in protecting Manitobans from the pandemic.

Manitoba has been preparing and planning for the COVID-19 vaccine to arrive for months. This includes making decisions about priority groups, the logistics of receiving, storing and distributing vaccines, and monitoring and reporting on the immunization campaign.

As of January 15, 2021, Manitoba is pausing new vaccine appointments due to Pfizer supply disruptions. Current inventory will be used to complete previously-scheduled first and second dose appointments. Manitoba anticipated these issues and has contingency plans in place. This page will be updated once information on the disruptions is received from our vaccination partners. The immunization plan is to safely and responsibly vaccinate as many Manitobans as possible with the doses given.
