Pediatric Pfizer vaccine approved for children ages five to 11

November 22, 2021

Last week, Health Canada approved the pediatric Pfizer vaccine for use in children ages five to 11 and clinical guidance was provided by the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI). 

Manitoba parents and caregivers will be able to make appointments for children beginning today, Monday, November 22 at 6:00 a.m, and the first shipment of vaccines are expected to be available in about a week’s time.

You can learn more about vaccinations for children ages five to 11, and book your appointment here, or by calling 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC)

A reminder that RRC Polytech supports up to three hours of paid leave for staff and faculty to receive a vaccination, booster or to support those who are taking a dependent to their vaccine appointment.
