Manitoba's Small Kids Get COVID Vaccine

Small Kids Get Vaccine

WINNIPEG - Manitoba is expanding COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to younger children.

Because of limited availability, the province's top doctor says only at risk and Indigenous kids between six months and four years of age will be able to book their vaccination appointments starting Monday.

This follows Health Canada's approval of Moderna's COVID vaccine for toddlers and small children.

It's the first time a coronavirus vaccine has been approved for that age group in the country.

Dr. Brent Roussin says there are no immediate plans to expand eligibility for second booster shots to all adults.
