Residents of downtown Brandon 18 years old or older are now eligible to book COVID-19 vaccination appointments after the province added the neighbourhood to its list of eligible communities on Wednesday.
Downtown is defined by the province to be south of Pacific Avenue, west of First Street, north of Richmond Avenue and east of 18th Street.
On top of residents, those working in the following places within that area are also eligible:
• K-12 schools
• Child care providers
• Food processing facilities
• Grocery or convenience stores
• Gas stations
• Public health inspectors and workplace health and safety officers
• Anywhere that serves food
Qualifiying Brandonites can book their appointments by visiting protectmb.ca or calling 1-844-626-8222.
The province also announced that a vaccination super site would be opening at 304 Whitmore Avenue East in Dauphin on May 10. It will be Prairie Mountain Health's second super site.
An announcement will be made when that site is ready to start booking appointments.
