Saskatchewan is opening COVID-19 vaccine first doses to the final age group eligible.
Starting on the 20th of May, those over the age of 12 will be able to receive a first dose of the vaccine. In their case, only the Pfizer doses will be open to them, as these are approved by Health Canada for use by young people.
These availabilities booked appointments, pharmacies, drive-thrus or walk-ins, and mobile clinics. Also, young people between the age of 12 and 17 will have the option of getting a vaccination at school, provided parental written consent has been given.
Appointments can be booked online or over the phone at 1-833-SASKVAX. People can also find details about pharmacies or drive-thrus on the Government of Saskatchewan’s website.
Currently, it shows that people will be able to get drive-thru Pfizer doses of the vaccine on May 20th from 9 AM to 4:30 PM and May 22nd from 12 PM to 7:30 PM. This drive-thru is once again at the Lloydminster Exhibition Grounds.
Second doses are also open to all individuals 85 years of age and older, all individuals who had their first dose before February 15th.
Individuals diagnosed with or being treated for cancer or who have received solid organ transplants will receive a letter of confirmation to get their second doses.
