Effective immediately, the Drive Thru for AstraZeneca immunization clinic, located in Regina, is now open for those people who are 60 to 64 years old. Those aged 60 to 64 can now attend the Drive-Thru immunization clinic on the grounds of the Regina Exhibition Association Ltd (REAL).
The Drive-Thru site will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The wait time and current eligibility for the Regina Drive-Thru clinic can be found here. With current wait times and demand, the SHA has decided to further expand eligibility for this clinic today to ensure immunization availability is being maximized.
ONLY those aged 60 to 64 years of age on the date of immunization will be eligible when they arrive.
Individuals who are now eligible are strongly encouraged to attend. You cannot book these immunizations on-line or by phone. To ensure a positive experience for those eligible and minimize waits, please do not attend this clinic unless you have been advised your age is eligible.
When you are eligible to receive a vaccine, at the REAL location please enter the grounds through the Lewvan and 11th Avenue entrance and follow the GREEN signs for the immunization Drive-Thru clinic. If you are going to the Mass Immunization Clinic follow the BLUE signs and if you’re wanting to go to the COVID-19 testing drive-thru follow the YELLOW signs.
Saskatchewan has received 15,500 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to be used with Saskatchewan residents. The Drive-Thru location in Regina opened Monday for AstraZeneca immunization. Vaccines are approved by Health Canada. All approved vaccines, Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca, are safe and we encourage everyone who is eligible to receive immunization. Please don’t hesitate, vaccinate!
Until most Saskatchewan residents are protected by the vaccine, you must continue following all public health orders and guidelines. COVID-19 is everywhere in Saskatchewan.
It is the responsibility of every person to strictly adhere to all public health orders and measures, including:
• Keep 2 metres away from others when in public and wear a mask.• Limit gatherings and ensure gathering sizes do not exceed public health orders.• Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. • Do not touch your eyes, nose, mouth or mask with unwashed hands.• Stay home if you are unwell; seek health care services when you help.• Regularly monitor your health for any COVID-19 symptoms and seek testing.
Thank-you for your patience as we enhance COVID-19 immunization access across the province in the coming weeks. For more information on COVID-19, including vaccinations, please visit saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
