SK prepares to vaccinate 5 - 11 year olds
Saskatchewan has ordered 112,000 doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine specially formulated for children aged five to 11 with delivery anticipated in mid-November, 2021.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority is currently working to ensure plans are in place to deliver vaccinations to this age group as soon as the COVID-19 vaccine receives approval from Health Canada.
While younger children are less likely to develop serious illness they are getting sick and playing a role in the transmission of the virus. Vaccinations for children will enable them to continue to be able to go to school and enjoy their activities.
Vaccinations for five to 11 year old individuals will be available at a wide variety of locations including participating pharmacies, SHA walk-in clinics, mobile clinics, at schools and at venues with easy community access near schools.
