Ages Expanding Again For Vaccination In Saskatchewan

Released on April 27, 2021

The eligible age ranges for booking COVID 19 vaccinations is lowering incrementally through the week.  Beginning Wednesday April 28 the eligible age will include individuals 42 years and older across the province and anyone 30 years and older in the Northern Saskatchewan Administrative District.

Effective Friday, April 30 the eligibility will lower again to age 40 and all eligible workers who have been identified as priority.

"We know Saskatchewan has been leading the country in vaccination rates per capita," Health Minister Paul Merriman said.  "We are limited by our vaccine supply but as larger volumes of vaccine arrives we are taking an aggressive approach to getting shots in the arms of as many residents as possible as quickly as possible."

The additional priority workers include police, firefighters, volunteer firefighters, public health inspectors, teachers and educational staff working with students, and all previously identified frontline health care workers.

Individuals eligible for priority vaccination need to provide proof of employment through a letter from their employer, a paystub no older than March 1, 2021 or a copy of their professional license.

Appointments for priority workers will need to be made by telephone at 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829).  Proof of employment will need to be shown at the time of the vaccination.  Vaccination appointments for newly eligible age categories can be booked online at www.Saskatchewan.ca/covid19.

People who do not have a cell phone, email account or need assistance can book by telephone.  Appointments may also be booked at a pharmacy participating in the vaccination delivery.
