Manitoba introduces first COVID-19 vaccine immunization card in Canada

CA, 09 Jun 2021
Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced on Tuesday that the province is introducing a secure immunization card that can be obtained two weeks after receiving both COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Pallister said Manitobans will "receive certain benefits" with the card including not having to self-isolate when travelling inter-provincially as well as being able to enjoy expanded visits at hospitals and personal care homes.

The cards, which will be available in both a physical and digital format, will include the person’s first and last name as well as a QR code, which when scanned, will confirm vaccination status. The cards will include no personal health information, Pallister said.

Manitobans can apply for the cards through the province’s website or by calling the insured benefits branch of Manitoba Health and Seniors Care at 204-786-7101 or 1-800-392-1207.
