Happy for the vaccine shot, but not for the bill that came in the mail

Manitoba

The city has apologized for sending bills to Winnipeggers who sought medical attention after getting a COVID-19 shot at Manitoba’s largest vaccine clinic.

Tom Denton, 86, poses for a portrait in his front driveway with the bill in Winnipeg on Thursday, April 1, 2021. Denton was vaccinated in mid-March, had a check-up from a paramedic during the waiting period after receiving the shot, and this week received a $228 bill from the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service for the treatment.
