Today, a new Public Health Order signed by the Minister of Health and Seniors Care, authorizes athletic therapists to administer the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine supply is low in Manitoba at this time so additional immunizers are not currently required, but the Order is part of the province’s planning to mobilize a broader workforce in the future. In the coming weeks the province will be working with the MATA to discuss details of recruitment and training. The MATA will provide details as we receive them.
The MATA looks forward to supporting the health and safety of all Manitobans by contributing to the provincial vaccination efforts.
