“Saskatchewan Health Authority supports COVID-19 immunization— the sooner the better and with the vaccine that is offered to you. On behalf of the clinical expert committee that has advised the COVID-19 Immunization campaign, we wish to reiterate that all vaccines remain safe and effective. Every vaccine is needed to minimize serious illness and death, protect health system capacity, minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to enable us to immunize as many people, as quickly as possible; safely.
"We continue to recommend and offer AstraZeneca and eventually the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine, a testament to the fact that they are needed in this province to help get us out of the pandemic. Especially in light of our province’s current case numbers and Variants of Concern, the risk of delaying vaccination is too high to jeopardize the health of those closest to us.”
