Covered Population Update in Epi Report, Dashboard Update July 16

The Saskatchewan Health Coverage Report is a count of persons who were eligible for Saskatchewan health insurance benefits as of June 30, and is the population data utilized by the Ministry of Health when reporting COVID-19 case and vaccination rates.  The covered population data has now been incorporated in the provincial, daily epi reporting and the vaccination and case rate information has been updated in the case news release accordingly.   

The COVID-19 dashboard will be updated for July 16.  There will be a variation between the case news release and the dashboard for July 15 only.  

STICK it to COVID:  COVID-19 Risk Highest for Unvaccinated

Of the 2,000 new COVID-19 cases reported in June, more than 80 per cent of those cases were unvaccinated.  There were zero ICU admissions and zero deaths in fully vaccinated residents.  At this time, your risk of contracting COVID-19 is not determined by your age but by your vaccination status.  Saskatchewan could continue to see localized outbreaks among unvaccinated and under-vaccinated populations.  Every eligible person requires two doses of vaccine in order to achieve optimal protection, particularly against the Delta variant.  

Every resident 12 and older in every community whether urban, rural or remote:  Stick it to COVID and get vaccinated.  

All Saskatchewan residents 12 years and older who have received their first dose of vaccine are now eligible to receive their second dose following a 28-day interval.  Whether seeking your first or second dose, vaccination appointments can be booked through the Saskatchewan Health Authority online at  www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19 or by calling 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829).  Street addresses and hours of operation for drive-thru and walk-in clinics are available at www.saskatchewan.ca/drive-thru-vax.

A map of participating pharmacies across the province is available at www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-pharmacies.  This online tool includes links to pharmacy booking websites and provides details on the vaccine brand being offered at each location.
