As you may have heard, the Manitoba Government’s vaccination program for health care workers continues to expand. Today, government announced expanded eligibility criteria which will mean that more MAHCP members will qualify to be vaccinated.
For current eligibility criteria, please check the Manitoba Government website: https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/vaccine/eligibility-criteria.html.
If you believe you meet one or more of these criteria, you are encouraged to call the vaccination program’s hotline to book an appointment: 1-844-MAN-VACC (1-844-626-8222).
Please note that MAHCP is not involved in setting criteria, which are being established by the Manitoba Government in conjunction with public health officials. MAHCP continues to advocate for a fair, equitable and accessible system to ensure that all Allied Health Professionals are able to access the vaccine as soon as possible.
Expanded eligibility criteria are being announced through government news bulletins. All members are encouraged to subscribe to those bulletins here https://www.gov.mb.ca/newsinfo/subscribe.html (choose Health, Seniors and Active Living) for the most up to date information.
Please stay safe and contact your manager or the vaccination program phone number above with any questions regarding your eligibility.
