The vaccination supersite at the RBC Convention Centre in downtown Winnipeg has been cleared to re-open after being evacuated for precautionary reasons Monday afternoon.
Winnipeg police said there were concerns around a possible gas leak in the area.
As a result, traffic had been blocked on nearby streets and drivers had been asked to avoid the area.
The convention centre is currently the location of a COVID-19 “supersite” vaccination clinic.
Anyone with an appointment from 4 p.m.-onward will be able to get their vaccine as scheduled.
In a post on the Manitoba Government Twitter account, the province said roughly 1,300 people were affected by the temporary closure.
The province asks anyone who missed their appointment as a result of the closure to reschedule by calling calling 1-844-626-8222 (1-844-MAN-VACC) or visiting the province’s website.
New appointment times will be added to the province’s booking system Tuesday morning so those requiring new appointments can re-book as soon as possible, the province said.
