On Monday, the province said people who have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on or before May 10 can now book their second appointment.
Previously, Manitobans who received their first doses on or before May 6 were able to book a second dose appointment.
All Indigenous people in Manitoba ages 12 and older can book an appointment for a second dose, as well as Manitobans 12 and older with particular conditions. The full list of conditions can be found here.
As of June 13, Manitoba has administered 1,045,956 vaccine doses.
