Over the weekend the province continued to expand the list of who’s eligible to receive the vaccine against COVID-19.
Some paramedics, home-care workers, and workers at COVID test sites and immunization clinics will now be able to book an appointment to be immunized.
As of Sunday afternoon, 9,498 vaccine doses have been administered in Manitoba.
Manitoba has received a total of 22,230 doses of the Pfizer vaccine, with another 9,360 doses expected to arrive this week. About one-third of that shipment will be used in Brandon at the new supersite opening on Jan. 18 at the Keystone Centre.
So far Manitoba has received 7,300 doses of the Moderna vaccine — with 5,300 doses being allocated for First Nations priority groups.
All of the remaining Moderna doses will be used to support the immunization campaign at personal care homes which begins this week.
