Bivalent COVID-19 availability expands in Saskatchewan on Sept. 19

Starting next Monday, the Moderna bivalent booster dose will be available at SHA vaccination clinics and through participating pharmacies to all Saskatchewan residents 70-years and older, as well as residents 50-years and older in First Nation and Métis communities and those in the Northern Service Administration District (NSAD).

Health officials suggest that eligible populations receive the Moderna bivalent booster dose at least four-months following their last COVID-19 vaccination. This bivalent booster can only be used as a booster and not as the first or second dose in a primary vaccination series. Individuals need to have completed at least two primary doses to receive this booster. If you have had COVID-19, you can receive any booster dose once you have recovered.

Residents can make a booking online for their booster appointments at an SHA clinic.

Additional age groups will be eligible to receive the bivalent vaccine as supply is received by the province.
