Getting Your COVID-19 Vaccination

The COVID-19 vaccine campaign's goal is to immunize as many people as quickly and as safely as possible.

Effective August 8, 2021, the Saskatchewan Health Authority is no longer offering drive-thru or booked mass vaccination clinics.

Vaccination is ongoing and available through:

All of the vaccines being administered are safe and approved by Health Canada for use. All of them are important to help protect the public from severe illness and death from COVID-19. The booking agents do not have access to information about the kind of vaccine you're getting, and the brand you receive is subject to change, based on available supplies.

1. Check Your Eligibility

calendar icon

All Saskatchewan residents born in 2009 (and older) are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. A second dose of the vaccine can be provided 28 days after receiving the first dose.

Vaccinations are available at participating pharmacies across the province and through Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) pop-up clinics. For communities without access to a nearby pharmacy, booked appointments may be available through the online booking system as well as through clinics operated by Indigenous Services Canada and the Northern Inter-tribal Health Authority (NITHA).

Vaccine Boosters

To protect Saskatchewan's most vulnerable populations as their immunity wanes, a phased approach to booster doses of COVID-19 vaccine is being used, effective September 7, 2021.

Eligible residents include:

  • people living in long-term care and personal care homes;
  • stem cell and solid organ transplant recipients; 
  • recipients on stable, active treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy) for malignant, hematologic disorders; 
  • recipients of an anti-CD20 agent (e.g. rituximab, ocrelizumab, ofatumumab).

A booster dose must be received at least 28 days after an individual's second mRNA dose.

Letters will be sent to those who are eligible, either from their physician or from the Ministry of Health. Long-term care and personal care homes will be contacted directly with information.

Evidence shows that factors contributing to waning effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines include age (elderly waning more quickly) and if the individual is immunocompromised due to a medical condition or medication.

Details are being determined on timing of administering booster doses and future phases of eligibility.

Starting October 4, phase two of the booster program begins.

Eligible residents include:

  • Residents 80 years and older, six months following their second dose.
