If your patient is currently receiving care at any of the CancerCare Manitoba Winnipeg sites or any Community Cancer Program throughout the province, you may have questions about the eligibility and the timing of the COVID-19 vaccine.

CancerCare Manitoba has a telephone line available 7 days per week to respond to any questions or concerns you have about vaccine eligibility for cancer patients and the timing to administer the vaccine for those who are eligible. This applies to both COVID-19 vaccines being administered at supersites, or COVID-19 vaccines that you administer in your clinic or practice (currently the AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine).

Please call 1-855-837-5400 (Hours: Monday to Friday 8 am - 6 pm and weekends 8 am - 4 pm) and you will be connected with a Nurse Navigator who will provide you with the best information available. If they cannot answer your questions, they will connect you with an Oncology Physician team and get back to you with an appropriate response.
