Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccination

Starting April 8, 2024, certain Saskatchewan residents can receive one additional dose of COVID-19 XBB.1.5 vaccine as long as it has been more than six months since their last COVID-19 XBB.1.5 dose or COVID-19 infection (whichever interval is longer).

The COVID-19 vaccine targeting the XBB 1.5 Omicron subvariant induces a stronger and more robust immune response to the current circulating variants compared to the original and bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

In Saskatchewan, COVID-19 vaccination is free and available through:

Pharmacists cannot provide immunizations to children less than five years of age. Children less than five years old will receive their immunizations via an SHA or partnering health agency provider.

Designated vaccines, including Novavax, are available by SHA appointment only by calling 1-833-727-5829. Pharmacies may not have all approved vaccines available to them.

All of the vaccines being administered are safe and effective. All of them are important to help protect the public from severe illness and death from COVID-19.
