COVID-19 vaccine booking eligibility remains unchanged from the last update provided on March 15. This includes all individuals 70 years of age and older, individuals 50 years of age and older living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District, and all remaining phase one health care workers.
While the vast majority in this age group have either received their vaccine or have an appointment booked, the SHA does have a number of appointments available in various locations around the province in the next week, including Regina, where there is a noted increase in the number of variant cases.
The telephone line (1-833 SASKVAX) is also reporting shorter-than-average wait times. This option is encouraged for individuals without a health card, or those who cannot otherwise book online, such as health care workers who have received their eligibility notification.
The SHA is urging those who are eligible to book these appointments as soon as possible, as eligibility to book will be opening up to further age groups in the coming days. If the location nearest you doesn't have appointments, try searching other locations nearby.
Given the demand for clinics through both online booking and the phone lines, most appointments available are being booked into first week of April. April allocations of vaccine have not yet been finalized; new clinics will be added as vaccine allocations are confirmed. Changes have been very quickly made to eligible age groups to date; however this is anticipated to slow down in the days ahead, given the high population of people who fall into the upcoming age categories.
Individuals 70 years of age and older
Individuals 50 to 69 years of age living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District
