WINNIPEG - Manitoba has struck another deal with North Dakota to get more frontline workers vaccinated against COVID-19.
Premier Brian Pallister says teachers will be inoculated just south of the US border the same way truckers were.
However, educators and other school workers will be exempt from self-isolation rules, as long as they return home immediately.
More details are expected next week but two vaccinations sites are planned. One south of Winnipeg and one south of Brandon.
The Manitoba Teachers' Society, which is calling for Winning schools to close until the third wave eases, says its members should be prioritized for local vaccines.
