COVID-19 Immunization Alert Effective April 30: Eligibility for Immunizations Moves to Age 40 and Ol

Effective 8:00am, Apr. 30, 2021, eligibility in the provincial age-based immunization program moves to age 40 and older, except for residents living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District, where it remains at age 30 and older. This applies to all immunization clinics: booked appointments, drive-thru/walk-in, mobile, and pharmacy.

Approximately 10,000 appointments are currently available throughout the province for booked appointments at SHA clinics, in addition to pharmacy appointments, and drive-thru and walk-in clinics. Pharmacy immunization details can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies.

 

Reminder to residents that clinic availability is based on vaccine availability, and demand for appointments outweighs the current supply. When age eligibility opens to a younger group appointments fill up fast, particularly in urban centres like Regina and Saskatoon. There may be additional clinic options in rural and northern communities, and residents are encouraged to consider those alternate locations for immunization.
