Manitobans who have received both their COVID-19 doses are now eligible to apply for an immunization card that would allow them to skip the quarantine process upon returning from domestic travel within Canada.
Premier Brian Pallister made the announcement on Tuesday morning, saying anyone who has reached the two week mark after being vaccinated with their second dose can now apply. He also hinted that further privileges for vaccinated Manitobans are on the way.
The cards come in digital and physical forms, containing a QR code that when scanned show proof of vaccination. Once someone applies for a physical card, they automatically get a digital copy.
Applications for the cards can be filled out online at immunizationcard.manitoba.ca.
Those without internet access can apply by calling the insured benefits branch of Manitoba Health and Seniors Care by calling 204-786-7101 or toll free at 1-800-392-1207.
The province asks that people ask their friends and family for assistance making the application before calling Manitoba Health.
It should take up to 14 days for a card to arrive after being ordered.
