All Indigenous people in Manitoba who are 18 and older are now eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

First Nations, Métis and Inuit people can now make appointments at supersites, pop-up clinics, and urban Indigenous clinics.

Health and Seniors Care Minister Heather Stefanson noted that the expansion is for sites that offer the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines.

Eligibility for the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is provided at medical clinics and pharmacies, will remain for people aged 40 and over or people aged 30 to 39 with certain medical conditions.

Indigenous people in Manitoba can call toll-free 1-844-626-8222 to book appointments at supersites, pop-up clinics or urban Indigenous clinics.

People can also book online.
