A COVID-19 vaccination super site opens Monday morning at the ground floor of the north building of RBC Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg.
Health-care workers dealing directly with patients in critical care units and COVID-19 immunization clinics or testing sites are eligible for the vaccine. Health-care workers who work with patients at long-term or acute care facilities, and who were born by Dec. 31, 1975, are also eligible.
As of Sunday night, more than 4,100 health-care workers had appointments to receive their first dose of the vaccine this week, while 2,000 remain available.
People with appointments should enter the main entrance on York Avenue and line up. Metal fencing is in place to guide the lineup and maximize the number of people inside, with floor stickers indicating two-metre distances.
