COVID-19 immunizations have started in Manitoba, but the vaccine is not yet available for everyone. The Sport Manitoba Clinic is approved to provide the vaccine when the vaccine supplies become available. Eligibility will be set by the provincial government.
To help you find out when you’ll be eligible, Doctors Manitoba created ManitobaVaccine.ca. We encourage you to visit the site, check your eligibility, and sign up to be notified about when you become eligible. You’ll also see answers to common vaccine questions, too.
As physicians, we support and trust these new vaccines. They are safe and effective, and we recommend that all adults get immunized with very few exceptions.
We also want to reassure you that it’s natural to have questions. These are new vaccines for a new disease. Check out ManitobaVaccine.ca for more information. Your doctor is also here to answer your questions and talk about your concerns.
Thank you for your patience, and please continue to do all you can to prevent spread of the virus, and to keep you and your loved ones safe. This means wearing a mask when you’re out, staying six feet apart from others, limiting contact with others, and washing your hands frequently.
