The Manitoba government is preparing to open COVID-19 vaccine appointments to everyone 18 years old and older starting Wednesday.

Premier Brian Pallister briefly mentioned the change in the legislature and the Health Department has confirmed the move.

The minimum age among the general population has been dropping quickly in recent days as more international supplies arrive.

The Progressive Conservative government also introduced a bill that will require employers to give workers up to three hours off to get vaccinated.

Finance Minister Scott Fielding says the measure mirrors what other provinces are doing.

He says it should also help in the effort to get more people vaccinated.
