Like Ontario's, the Manitoba Pandemic Sick Leave program will provide private-sector full-time and part-time workers who don't currently get paid leave from their employers with a few days off for COVID-19 testing, vaccination, isolating due to symptoms, or caring for a loved one for any of those reasons.
Both provinces currently have the programs in place until September 25, 2021, but there are some other differences between them.
While Ontario is giving workers three paid days off, Manitoba is offering them five days off. However, despite the difference in length, both provinces' programs offer a total of up to $600 for employees.
Over 70 pharmacies in Toronto and Peel have the Pfizer vaccine available for people 18 and older.
For Moderna, more than 50 locations in Durham, Hamilton, Ottawa, Windsor and York are offering vaccine doses to those over 18 years old.
Ontario is advising anyone planning to get a dose this way to check with a pharmacy ahead of time, because some might require you to book an appointment, while others allow walk-ins. Also, you can check that they have doses in stock.
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.
