Boosters now available in Manitoba for children aged 5 to 11

Children five to 11-years-old are now eligible to receive a booster of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

Manitoba Health made the announcement Wednesday morning stating for most children it would be their third dose, and it’s important for those with an underlying medical condition to get the booster.

Before booking an appointment, parents should ensure their kids wait a minimum of six months after they’ve had their last dose.


The National Advisory Committee on Immunization says eligible children who have had COVID-19 should wait three months after recovering from the virus to get the booster.

Appointments are available at regional vaccine sites, public health offices, pharmacies, and medical clinics. You can book an appointment by calling 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC).
