COVID-19 Vaccine

Vaccinations are here. Summer is coming.

It is time for Manitobans to begin to return to their normal lives after a year and a half of COVID-19 restrictions.

If we get vaccination levels up and keep new COVID-19 cases down, Manitobans can enjoy the summer we all want and deserve.

What Vaccination Levels are Required for Each Holiday Milestone?

The only sure way to protect ourselves and our health care system from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.

One vaccination dose offers initial protection. Two vaccination doses offer the highest possible protection.
