Select Segment of Manitobans Eligible for Second Jab

The province has expanded eligibility for the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone who received the first dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines on or before March 29.

Manitobans can book an appointment on the province’s website or by calling 1-844-626-8222.

Second dose appointments for the mRNA-based Pfizer and Moderna vaccines opened back on Friday to those with select health conditions. 

Second dose appointments also opened to Indigenous Manitobans on Monday.

Second dose appointments will continue to be opened based on when individuals received their first shot.

Manitoba continues to recommend those who have received one dose of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine, to wait at least 12 weeks before getting their second dose. The first Manitobans who got the AstraZeneca vaccine in March will hit the 12-week mark next week.

Some can get their second AstraZeneca dose prior to that 12-week period, provided a pharmacist or doctor explains the clinical benefits and risks.
