Starting March 18 at 12 o-clock noon, eligible groups will be expanded to include all individuals 67 years of age and older, individuals 50 years of age and older living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District, all remaining phase one health care workers, and people with underlying health conditions who are clinically extremely vulnerable.

People with underlying health conditions who are clinically extremely vulnerable
Targeted vaccinations to select congregate living (group homes, those with intellectual disabilities)
SHA is also in the process of connecting with group homes for persons with intellectual disabilities, shelters, and other congregate living facilities. These organizations will be receiving email communication in the next 24-48 hours with information on plans for the vaccination of socially vulnerable populations in their area. Follow up phone calls will also take place next week.
VACCINE AVAILABILITY AND BOOKING UPDATEGiven the demand for clinics through both online booking and the phone lines, most appointments available are being booked into the 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.
We continue to ask for patience from all people in Saskatchewan while we work to administer vaccine as quickly as possible according to available supplies.
