The eligible age for vaccination appointments will be lowering once again in less than a week, after the province began including new groups of priority frontline workers.
Effective May 4, residents aged 37 years or older across the province and residents aged 18 and older living in the northern district will be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Saskatchewan.
This includes vaccine opportunities at any one of the province’s mass immunization clinics, walk-in or drive-through clinics, pharmacies and mobile clinics.
Prioritized frontline workers over the age of 18 will also be eligible, expanding from the province’s previous announcement on Friday that priority groups would follow the provincial age eligibility.
Booked appointments will be available either online or by calling the Vaccine Call Centre at 1-833-SaskVax (1-833-727-5829), with the exception of priority workers who must provide proof of eligibility, as they can only book by phone.
Also, beginning May 5, eligible truck drivers and essential energy workers may receive their vaccine in Kenmare, North Dakota due to an agreement reached between Saskatchewan and the U.S. state. Vaccines at this site will be available from noon to 8 p.m. until May 7.
