Vaccine Eligibility Changes to 28 Days Between Doses

​Effective, 8:00 a.m., June 24, 2021, residents are eligible for their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine a minimum of 28 days after they receive the first dose. This means that as of June 24, second dose eligibility is open to any resident who received their first dose on or before May 27.


Residents who received their first COVID-19 immunization on May 28 will be eligible for their second dose on June 25; May 29 is eligible on June 26; and so on.


Once an individual is eligible for immunization they remain eligible and can be immunized at any time.


The Saskatchewan Health Authority says they have over 45,000 appointments available for first and second dose immunizations at clinics throughout the province.


The expected shipment of Pfizer vaccine for Saskatchewan has been delayed. The Pfizer brand remains the only one approved for use in children ages 12-17.
