Walk-Ins Will Be Available For Those Seeking Second Jab

Manitoba will be ramping up the vaccinations next week with more appointments and walk-ins.

Walk-in options at most supersites will begin as well next week.

Doctor’s offices and pharmacies are also going to get about 30,000 doses this week and another 30,000 next week. 

The province also expanded eligibility for second dose appointments allowing anyone who got a shot on or before May 14th can now book a second.

Those who got their first dose on or before May 18th will be able to book as of 11:45 a.m. Thursday.

Anticipated delivery of over 300,000 Moderna doses will help the province expand walk-in options, which are prioritized for first doses but available to people who want a second as well.

Eligible Manitobans who got Pfizer or AstraZeneca as their first shot can take advantage of the walk-in options and get Moderna for their second shot.

Starting on Sunday, the supersites in Brandon, Dauphin and Morden will begin accepting walk-ins, as will the Leila Avenue supersite in Winnipeg.

The goal is to open second dose eligibility by the end of next week to all Manitobans age 12 and up who have had sufficient time pass since their first dose.
