Eligibility to be immunized at a super site or pop-up clinic has been expanded to include individuals aged 57 or older and First Nation people aged 37 or older. Anyone who has been in Manitoba for one month or more can receive the vaccine at no cost if they meet provincial eligibility requirements.
