The townhall included an expert medical panel with vaccine and pediatric specialists, including:

  • Dr. Marni Hanna, President of the Manitoba Pediatric Society
  • Dr. Ruth Grimes, President of the Canadian Paediatric Society
  • Dr. Jared Bullard, Section Head of Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Associate Medical Director of Cadham Lab
  • Dr. Joss Reimer, provincial COVID-19 vaccine Medical Lead and Medical Officer of Health
  • Dr. Ashley Chopek, pediatric oncology and bone marrow transplant specialist

“As a pediatrician, I want to ensure all parents have the facts to make a fully-informed decision about the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Ruth Grimes, President of the Canadian Paediatric Society. ​“The vaccine will offer protection against COVID-19 and related complications. It will also help to protect those around you, and avoid disruptions to our everyday lives.”

“It’s only natural to have questions about a new vaccine, especially when it’s for children, and that’s why we’ve planned this town hall,” said Dr. Kristjan Thompson, President of Doctors Manitoba. “Hundreds of pediatricians and family physicians across the province are also ready to answer questions one-on-one, and in many cases they will be offering the vaccine in their clinic too.”
