COVID-19 Vaccine

Information for Health Care Professionals

Health care providers play a critical role in sharing information with their patients about COVID-19 and immunization. Additional information on vaccine development, authorized vaccines and vaccine is available through the federal government’s COVID-19 Vaccination Tool Kit for Health Care Providers.

Selected health care providers are among Manitoba’s first priority group for immunization. For more information about eligibility criteria and the current clinic, visit Immunization Clinics.
