How long will I have to wait to see my COVID-19 immunization record online?
It generally takes up to seven days after your immunization for your information to be available online. If you have a problem accessing your record and it has been at least a week, use this help form.
Once I get the vaccine, can I travel?
You should continue to reduce travel as much as possible. This is because COVID-19 may still be able to spread to others, even if you’ve been vaccinated and don’t get sick.
With new strains of COVID-19 appearing should I wait to be vaccinated?
No, do not wait to get vaccinated. Scientists are still studying the effectiveness of vaccines against new strains of the virus but everyone who is eligible to get a vaccine should go for their shot as soon as they can.
After I’m immunized, do I still have to wear a mask and social distance?
Yes. To protect yourself and others, keep following the fundamentals and:
Wear a mask over your nose and mouthStay at least 6 feet (2 metres) away from othersWash your hands oftenStay home when you’re sickFollow public health guidelines
It’s important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic as we learn more about how COVID-19 vaccines work in real-world conditions. We don’t yet know whether getting a COVID-19 vaccine will prevent you from spreading the virus to other people, even if you don’t get sick yourself.
Will I get a document with proof of vaccination?
Yes. You have the right to your own personal health information. If you have a valid Manitoba Health card and a personal email address, you can access your COVID-19 immunization record on the Shared Health online portal. It shows which vaccine you received and when.
