Firefighters and police officers can now make their COVID-19 vaccination appointment.

The province is set to release more information on second COVID-19 doses in the upcoming weeks, but for now, eligibility is changing.

Manitobans aged 50 and older and First Nations people aged 30 and older are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The AstraZeneca/Covishield vaccines offered at medical offices and pharmacies are available to those aged 40 or older.

Locals can now book vaccine appointments at the newest supercentre in Winnipeg, located on Leila Avenue, for appointments starting May 7.

Indigenous-led COVID-19 immunization pop-up clinics in Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and Portage la Prairie are being booked.

Those booking can do so online or by calling 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC) with their email and health card number. Dose availability can be found here.

The province says 521,910 doses of vaccine have landed in Manitoba including:

• 319,410 doses of Pfizer vaccine
• 118,400 doses of the Moderna vaccine
• 84,100 doses of the AstraZeneca/Covishield vaccine

So far recorded 293,995 first doses and 70,394 second doses have been administered. 

The province has more confirmed Pfizer doses coming.
