Stepping Up Vaccinations

Stepping Up Vaccinations

WINNIPEG - Manitoba's Vaccine Task Force says the province is set to meet and maybe exceed it's goal next week of administering 20,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine per day.

Co-lead Johanu Botha says they are stepping up vaccination efforts because 300,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine are expected to arrive by the end of the month and supplies of the Pfizer vaccine are steady.

The Task Force is aiming to administer 175,000 doses next week which would average out to about 25,000 a day.

The hope is to have all Manitobans 12 and older eligible for their second dose of a COVID vaccine by the end of next week.
