Young people aged 12 and up are now eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccine first-dose appointments at the Brandon or Dauphin Supersites or where the Pfizer vaccine is administered.
To make the visit as easy as possible, young people aged 12 to 15 can either attend the appointment with a parent, guardian or caregiver or bring a signed consent form at the time of their appointment. If the youth attends without a guardian and without a signed consent form, they will go through an informed consent process with a clinical lead to assess their ability to consent on their own and proceed with the vaccine.
Young people aged 16 and 17 can sign their own consent form.
If you meet the criteria, you can book your appointment at a supersite online at https://protectmb.ca/making-your-appointment-is-easy/ with an email address and health card number or by calling (toll-free) 1-844-626-8222. Individuals can book for other people but require that individuals Manitoba Health card number.
If possible, it’s important to bring your completed consent form with you for a faster process.
