Appointments for COVID-19 Vaccine

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

You are encouraged to book online when you are eligible. By booking online you will have faster access to book your appointment. There is also a phone-in option if you require assistance.   

Vaccine supplies are limited and appointments are subject to change based on supply. We aim to minimize appointment changes and cancellations, however this is sometimes unavoidable due to vaccine supply. Thanks for your patience. 

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.

Watch this step-by-step video tutorial on how to use the online vaccine booking system:

1. Check Your Eligibility

Currently Booking: Residents 37 years and older (born on this day in 1984 or earlier) provincially (online and call centre booking available)

This applies to all immunization clinics: booked appointments, drive-thru/walk-in, pharmacies and mobile clinics.

Eligible priority groups under 37 years of age may visit a drive-thru or walk-in clinic, arrange an appointment with a participating pharmacy, or call 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829) to make an appointment through the SHA booking system. 
Eligible residents under 37 years will be required to provide proof of employment at the time of immunization (a pay stub, letter from their employer, or a copy of a professional license).  Note the Swift Current drive-thru will be offering AstraZeneca and therefore only open to residents aged 40 and older.

We are starting with a small age group to ensure a positive experience. Access to booking vaccine appointments will continue to open to additional ages, from oldest to youngest, as vaccine supply allows.
