Brandon’s East End Joins Growing List Of Areas Making Vaccine Available

Another neighbourhood in Brandon will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination.

Today the province announced that the East End, including anything east of First Street, is now eligible for vaccination.

More neighbourhoods in Winnipeg and a large chunk of eastern Manitoba have also been prioritized for COVID-19 vaccinations, allowing tens of thousands more people aged 18 and up to book appointments for a shot.

Adult residents of Winnipeg’s Fort Garry area south of Bishop Grandin Boulevard are eligible for vaccinations.

More neighbourhoods include Tyndall Park and Meadows West.

In eastern Manitoba, Sagkeeng First Nation, Powerview-Pine Falls, Manigotagan and Bissett are all included.

All adults who live in these areas can book vaccination appointments, as can some adults who work with the public in these jurisdictions.

That list includes teachers, people who work at daycares, food-processing plant workers, some inspectors, and people who work gas stations, grocers, convenience stores and restaurants.

Meanwhile, the province announced 230 more cases of COVID-19 and 2 more deaths.
