Roll up your sleeves, Winnipeg. The first round of H1N1 vaccine shots were administered this morning at several locations throughout the city.
Some of you may be a little terrified of needles, but they don’t hurt much.
We were at a vaccine clinic in St. Boniface as people starting to stream in for the shot.
The WRHA has organized clinics to run for a span of six weeks, with similar clinics being set up all over the province. A priority list has been created and officials ask that if you don’t fall under one of the categories of being an at-risk person, that you wait until a call is made to the general public to get the shot.
As previously noted, the shot is free and any Manitoban wishing to get it will not be turned away. Just make sure to bring your Manitoba Health Card.
UPDATE: 3:00 p.m. — A total of 4,000 patients were vaccinated at the city’s 12 mass clinics today.
