Manitoba Has Opened The Opportunity To Take The Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine

Due to the increasing cases of COVID-19 and its other variants, such as the omicron variant, many Manitobans are taking appointments to get the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine to move on from this pandemic. The province is determined not to return to closures. With educational institutions now open this fall, it is predicted to increase COVID-19 cases.

The government of Manitoba has announced that “The bivalent vaccine has been developed to provide protection against two strains of COVID-19: the original strain of the virus and the omicron variant.” Only people older than twelve years old are eligible to take this vaccine.

Many Manitobans have already signed up to take the vaccine, “I think it is essential. The pandemic is still ongoing, but the world has to move on, and I’m okay with that, but people shouldn’t be careless. They should keep on following some of the restrictions. They should also try to protect themselves, take vaccines, and keep their masks on in busy places,” said a Manitoban when asked about her opinion regarding the new bivalent vaccine.

The government has asked citizens to be patient as there will be a second shipment of this vaccine from the federal government soon, and many Manitobans will get the chance to get it. The government promised upcoming information regarding this topic. Manitobans are advised to get the vaccine as it will boost their immune system against the virus.
