Vaccine Eligibility Drops To 54

Vaccine Eligibility Drops To 54

WINNIPEG - The government of Manitoba says it's dropping COVID-19 vaccine ages of eligibility yet again.

The province says eligibility is expanding to allow anyone aged 54 and up, and First Nations citizens 34 years of age and older.

Manitoba Health says they’re working on a plan to widen eligibility much further, with all adults who are deemed “high-risk,” such as police, firefighters, and other front-line workers, included in the expanded roll-out.

So far, Manitobans have received more than 341,000 doses of vaccine.

If you’re eligible, you can schedule a vaccination appointment online or call 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222) toll-free.
