STICK IT TO COVID: Watch for your Eligibility for Boosters

Released on November 2, 2021

Starting October 25, the COVID-19 immunization program was expanded, permitting eligible age and at-risk groups to receive their booster or third dose.

The following are currently eligible to receive their booster dose at least six months after the second dose was received:

  • individuals aged 65 years and older;
  • individuals living in the Far North and those living on First Nation communities, aged 50 years and older;
  • health care workers; or,
  • individuals born in 2009 and earlier with underlying health conditions in people with severe respiratory conditions, people with rare diseases or very significant developmental disabilities that increase their risk of infections, individuals who had their spleen removed, people on dialysis or with chronic kidney disease (stage five) and those with significant neuromuscular conditions requiring respiratory support.

Residents of long-term care, special care and personal care homes and immunocompromised and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals including organ transplant recipients, those receiving immunosuppressive or immunomodulating therapy, etc. may receive their third dose 28 days after receiving their second dose. 

A table with the list of at-risk populations is available at including information on obtaining letters of eligibility for presentation at the vaccination clinic.

Your immunization record will be confirmed at the clinic location to ensure that it has been at least six months since your last COVID-19 vaccination.

It is recommended that your booster dose match your previous two dose COVID-19 vaccinations.  If you received two doses of Astra Zeneca, it is recommended that you receive an mRNA vaccine for your booster immunization.

Stick it to COVID and book your immunization today.

Monoclonal Antibody Treatment Self-Assessment Tool Online

Monoclonal antibodies are available for eligible patients who have contracted COVID-19.  If you have tested positive and are within five days of being symptomatic, you may be referred for treatment.  The self-assessment tool is now online, to support the clinical decision to refer patients for this treatment.

Saskatchewan To Offer Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine

The federal government has allocated an initial supply of 2,500 single dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines for use in Saskatchewan's COVID-19 vaccination rollout.

Details on when these doses will arrive in the province are still being determined and will be announced publicly once known.

Health Canada authorized the one-dose Janssen vaccine for use in Canada earlier this year, but it has not been administered in Canada to date.

Public Health Orders Will Be Enforced

The week of October 25, Saskatchewan Health Authority public health inspectors issued a number of fines:

  • Two individual fines of $2,800 were issued at Tobin Lake for failure to mask as well as one corporate ticket to the Shorebird Inn at Tobin Lake for failure to screen for proof of vaccination or negative test.  The voluntary payment option for the $14,000 corporate fine will not be available for this fine.  As this recipient has had previous tickets, a court appearance is required to speak to the charge.
  • Scott's Fine Foods in Leader was issued a corporate fine of $14,000 for failure to screen for proof of vaccination or negative test.
  • The Beacon in Caronport was issued a corporate fine of $14,000 for failure to screen for proof of vaccination or negative test.

Note that under The Health Information and Privacy Act, the Ministry of Health cannot disclose the names of individuals who have received fines.

Self-Test Results versus Negative Testing Result Requirement

Routine, voluntary testing at home will help prevent asymptomatic transmission and will reduce COVID-19 transmission in the community.  Delivery of rapid antigen test kits for the general public throughout the province at participating businesses and locations will continue with more than four million kits to be delivered to the province in November.

Self-tests are to be used only as a screening tool.

Stay home at the first-sign of any COVID-19 symptoms and seek PCR testing through the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).  Note that all testing completed by the SHA and all PCR tests conducted by third parties are included in the provincial dashboard numbers reported daily. 

Self-tests cannot be used for the negative test requirement under the proof of vaccination or negative test policy as they do not provide the required documentation of results.

Anyone requiring a proof of negative COVID-19 test require the verified, negative test certificate including your name, birth date, type of test, date and time of sample collection and test result verified by the test operator.

A list of negative test service providers is available at
