SHA exploring options to vaccinate younger ages quicker
In response to increased cases of variants of concern, the Saskatchewan Health Authority is also exploring additional steps throughout the province to offer vaccine to younger age groups, so as to keep immunizations progressing quicker.
This could mean vaccine brands may be changed at some clinics in order to remove any age-barriers that prevent immunization of younger people.
These changes have begun in Regina, and are coming to Prince Albert, North Battleford, Humboldt, Moose Jaw, Watrous and Saskatoon in the coming days.
These communities are using AstraZeneca in their booked appointments, as well as at their drive-thrus.
The SHA notes that at all times at any vaccination appointment or drive thru, nurses will be there to answer questions and ensure that a patient is ready and comfortable before proceeding with immunization.
