More Third Doses In Manitoba

More Third Doses

WINNIPEG - Manitoba is recommending a third dose of COVID-19 vaccine to First Nations people living on reserves. That's about 7,200 people.

Dr. Marcia Anderson says breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated Indigenous Manitobans have been on the rise since August.

The province says the booster shot should be given at least six months after the second dose is administered.

Third doses were recommended earlier for other groups including care home residents and health care workers.
