Flu Vaccine
Now Available

All Manitobans over 6 months of age are eligible for the seasonal flu shot. It’s especially recommended for those at increased risk of serious illness from the flu, their caregivers and close contacts.

Which Bivalent Booster
Should I Get?

Health Canada has approved two COVID-19 bivalent booster vaccines:

Moderna bivalent booster: targets the original virus strain as well as omicron BA.1 subvariant. It was approved for use by anyone who is age 18 and over.

Pfizer bivalent booster: targets the original virus strain as well as omicron BA.4 and BA.5 subvariants. It was approved for use by anyone who is age 12 and over.

Adults may receive either a Moderna or a Pfizer bivalent booster dose. Children aged 12 to 17 will receive the Pfizer bivalent because it is the only one approved for their age group.

Both bivalent vaccines provide protection against the circulating strains of omicron. There is no evidence indicating one bivalent vaccine is more effective than the other. If you have already received one omicron-containing bivalent vaccine as part of a fall COVID-19 vaccine booster program, you are not eligible for another.
