Milestone reached; project funding announced
Hey there, time traveller!

Thanks to the efforts of many Manitobans to follow public health orders over the past year and a half, Manitoba has achieved its second holiday vaccine milestone of the 4-3-2-One Great Summer re-opening path nearly a month ahead of schedule, meaning more than 75 per cent of eligible Manitobans have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and more than 50 per cent of people have received both doses.
Public health officials have recommended that at least one incubation period should pass between changing public health orders. As a result, new public health were issued on July 14 to reflect the immunization milestone achieved. Per capita, Manitoba continues to be first in the country in the total number of doses administered and percentage of eligible people aged 12 or older who are immunized at 129,222 per 100,000 and 51.1 per cent respectively.
