Today, the Manitoba Government announced eligibility for second doses is expanding to include:
- Individuals who received their first dose of vaccine on or before April 8 will be able to book today;
- individuals who received their first dose on or before April 13 will be able to book their second dose beginning tomorrow at 11:45 a.m.; and
- anyone who received a first dose of AstraZeneca/Covishield is now eligible to receive a second dose of any mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), provided they meet provincial eligibility criteria for their second dose.
All Indigenous people in Manitoba and individuals with specific health conditions are also eligible to book their second dose, as long as they meet the minimum time interval between doses. If anyone in these groups received a first dose of AstraZeneca/Covishield, the minimum time interval between doses is 28 days.
