Marli Morris started this petition to Manitoba Provincial Government

Currently, you need two doses of the shingles vaccine for your body to become immune, each dose is $150, which is not covered by our provincial health plan. There is a shingles outbreak happening throughout Winnipeg and for people to become immune or even to prevent those who already have it from contracting it again, they have to pay an exorbitant amount of money. While 50% of cases effect people 60 years old and above it is becoming increasingly common in younger people and can result in chronic nerve pain for the remainder of their lives. 

We need to make our voices heard so that our province doesn’t continue to allow our citizens to live in pain or in fear of this virus. There is no reason for it to be $300 to get immunized, and there is no reason to make someone wait until they either contract the virus or turn 50 to be immunized.
