Hey there, time traveller!

I am so excited to share with the residents of Burrows that all Manitobans aged 12 and over are now eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine. Residents can call their local pharmacies to see if they have vaccines available: Norwest Co-Op Community Health (785 Keewatin St.) or register to be vaccinated at the Leila Super Site (770 Leila Ave.).

Please check out protectmb.ca or call 1-844-626-8222 to sign up today. If you have any questions, do reach out to my office.

I was recently vaccinated at the Waterford Pharmacy. I have been looking forward to being vaccinated for months, so it was an honour to finally have this opportunity. I had a wonderful experience receiving my vaccine; the process was quick and the staff were very helpful and kind. After many months of waiting, most Manitobans are now eligible to receive the vaccine.

This is a collective step closer to returning to some sort of normalcy in the near future. Whether it be attending birthday parties, large sporting events, religious gatherings, or visiting the seniors and elders in our life — I truly feel like we are getting closer to returning to the things we love. I am happy I have done my part to protect my loved ones and all Manitobans from the COVID-19 virus, and I encourage you to do the same.

During this time of excitement, stress, and constant change, many of us have developed strong emotions relating to COVID-19. For some, this may be challenging to encounter when we are already feeling hesitant or concerned about getting vaccinated. It is understandable to have mixed emotions when it comes to making decisions about your health, particularly when it also impacts those around us.

We are a diverse community here in Burrows, and we all have different life experiences. As we can never fully understand what another person is going through, it is important that we support and look out for one another in these times.

Patience, compassion, and understanding are powerful tools. When we use these tools for interacting with one another, we strengthen our relationships with respect and care. This is how we should approach conversations about COVID-19 and vaccinations.

I encourage any Manitoban who feels uncertain about the vaccine to seek out information, consult a health-care provider, and reach out to any supports necessary. I look forward to seeing you all in the community soon.

My office team and I are here to support constituents in every way that we can. Please reach out by email, diljeet.brar@yourmanitoba.ca, or by phone, 204-415-7621.
