Sask. Vaccine eligibility drops to 35 and over – fr


REGINA – Saskatchewan’s COVID-19 vaccination reservation system will be available for residents 35 years of age and older starting at 8 a.m. Thursday

This applies to all of Saskatchewan, with the exception of those in the Northern Saskatchewan Administrative District, where age eligibility will remain at 18 and over.

“Due to supply, 11,200 doses of Moderna are currently available. Participating pharmacies will receive an additional 15,500 doses of Moderna later this week for distribution early next week, ”the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) said in a press release.

Some frontline workers are also eligible. A full list of included occupations can be found on the province’s website.

Eligible people can visit a drive-in or walk-in clinic, or make an appointment. To see drive-thru or walk-in locations or wait times in your area, visit the SHA website.

“There may be clinical options outside of your community and residents are encouraged to consider these other locations for vaccination,” SHA said.

Appointments can be made online or by phone at 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829).

THE REOPENING PLAN COUNTS ON VACCINATIONS

The Saskatchewan government has announced a three-step plan to gradually reopen the province, based on the percentage of residents vaccinated.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said the roadmap to reopening will only work if everyone gets vaccinated and continues to follow public health orders.

“These are the two things we all need to do to move forward through the three stages of the reopening so we can have a great summer in Saskatchewan and get back to normal,” Moe said in a statement.
