STICK IT TO COVID: Expanding Booster Dose Eligibility

Released on September 28, 2021

In September, Saskatchewan launched the COVID-19 booster program, with residents of long-term and personal care homes and certain immuno-compromised populations eligible. 

Starting October 4, phase two of the booster program begins.  Eligible residents include: 

  • Residents 80 years and older, six months following their second dose.
     
  • Other immunocompromised and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals including those with auto-immune diseases and those who received chemotherapy or radiation therapy in the past six months. A complete list is available at Saskatchewan.ca/covid-19.  These populations can receive the booster a minimum of 28 days after their second dose.

Those eligible for medical reasons will receive a letter from the Ministry of Health or their physician with instructions on how to receive the booster. Eligible residents must present the letter before immunization will be administered.

Those eligible for booster shots are encouraged to visit a pharmacy or pop-up clinic opportunity listed on the SHA website. Online booking is not yet available for booster doses.

Note that if you have already received a third dose for travel or in a long-term care or personal-care home setting, you do not require a fourth dose.  The third dose already received provides the necessary increased protection; you do not need any further doses at this time.

Additional populations eligible for booster vaccinations will be announced in the coming weeks.
