Effective, 8:00 a.m., May 24, 2021, anyone who is 80 and older OR who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine on or before March 1, those being treated for cancer, and those who have received solid organ transplants are also now eligible to book their second doses – residents with these medical conditions will receive a letter of confirmation in the mail to present upon immunization.
For all other residents, eligibility to book for second doses will be announced according to the age-based and priority sequencing of first doses, as detailed on the
Government of Saskatchewan's Second Dose Strategy.
Residents will be required to know the date of their first immunization. That information was noted on the card presented at the first dose immunization, or if misplaced can be found by calling 1-833-SASKVAX (1-833-727-5829), or checking Immunization History on the resident's MySaskHealthRecord account.
The brand of the second dose must match the brand of the first dose. National reviews of the safety and efficacy of interchanging the second dose brand are on-going and the provincial policy on maintaining the same brand for the second dose may be updated following this review.
During the second dose appointment, the clinic or pharmacy will validate the timing and brand of the first dose to ensure the resident is receiving the second dose within the recommended timeframe.
The type of vaccine available at each location will be confirmed when booking online or over the phone, or for drive-thru and walk-in clinics the vaccine brand will be noted on the COVID-19 Immunization Update PSA's, and on the online schedule.
