Manitoba hit a milestone today, as more than one million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have now been administered in the province.

Acting Health and Seniors Care Minister Kelvin Goertzen says that Manitoba has consistently been in the top three provinces in terms of per capita doses administered, in recent weeks.

“Manitobans have been making the choice to get vaccinated in incredible numbers, as demonstrated by hitting the one-million-doses mark. Even though this is an important milestone, there is much more work to do as we strive to reach immunization targets and reopen Manitoba.”

Manitoba continues to expand eligibility for second doses, and today it was changed to include Manitobans who received their first shot on or before May 6th.
