Released on November 30, 2021
'Tis the season for planning holiday season gatherings with family, friends and in workplaces. Share seasonal greetings and not COVID-19.
Single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccines are still available to residents 18 and older on a walk-in basis at designated clinics in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Lloydminster and Estevan. You are considered fully immunized 14 days after your Janssen vaccination, before that holiday break begins.
Vaccination is the best tool available to prevent COVID-19 transmission and serious COVID-19 illness, particularly as new variants of concern are being detected in Canada. Children aged five to 11 are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and getting immunized as soon as possible, which means they will be eligible for a second dose that much sooner.
Find a vaccination clinic near you and give the gift of protection from COVID-19 to yourself, your friends and family.
SHA Service Resumption: All Phase One Service Resumption Targets Met
On November 3, aggressive targets were established for returning redeployed health care staff to their home positions by the end of November. As of November 26, more than 90 per cent of eligible SHA staff who were redeployed to address the COVID-19 case surge have returned to their home positions. The result is that 257 services that were previously slowed have been fully resumed and 59 have been partially resumed.
The SHA is currently finalizing Phase Two of the service resumption plan aimed at returning the remaining staff redeployed to acute care and ICU settings back to their home positions, enabling additional services to return to normal. Details will be provided as soon as available.
More detail in the progress report on these targets and the associated service resumptions by SHA service area is now available.
