Fully immunized Manitobans will now be able to travel with a new, secure immunization card that will be available to people two weeks after they have received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. Card holders will no longer have to self-isolate for two weeks upon return.
Once someone has successfully completed an online request, they will automatically receive access to a digital card. People can also Have an option to request a physical card. If a physical card is requested, it can be expected in the mail within 14 days.
To be eligible to receive an immunization card, Manitobans must:
• have a Manitoba health card;
• have received two doses of a vaccine; and
• wait 14 days after getting the second dose of vaccine, so it can take full effect.
Manitobans may apply for the card using the new online portal at https://immunizationcard.manitoba.ca/.
People who would like to request their card but do not have internet access can contact the insured benefits branch of Manitoba Health and Seniors Care at 204-786-7101 or 1-800-392-1207 (toll-free) to request a card.
In addition, for Manitoba health-care facilities, including hospitals and personal care homes, this card will permit expanded visitation if both the patient/resident and visitor are fully vaccinated.
