These Are The Perks Of Being Fully Vaccinated In Manitoba From September 3

People in Manitoba who are fully vaccinated will soon be offered a range of perks compared to unvaccinated or partially vaccinated citizens, the province announced on Friday, August 27.

Effective Friday, September 3, the province will require people to be fully vaccinated to participate in certain activities and attend certain events.

Under the new rules, fully immunized Manitobans can: eat indoors at restaurants or outside for patio dining; attend indoor and outdoor ticketed sporting events and concerts; go to gyms, movie theatres, nightclubs and other licensed premises; go to casinos and bingo halls and participate in organized indoor group recreational classes and activities.

"Children 11 and under who are not eligible to be immunized will be able to attend events and activities with a fully immunized adult," a press release from the province said.

"Manitoba's vaccine passport benefit will help encourage greater vaccine uptake, which is necessary to protect our health-care system from the COVID-19 fourth wave," the province's Health and Seniors Care Minister Audrey Gordon said.

A requirement for people to wear masks in all indoor public places will also come into effect again on Saturday, August 28.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on the vaccines and can answer any questions you may have. Click here for more information.
