COVID-19 immunization alert effective May 1-3: Drive-thru and walk-in schedule

From the SHA:

Reminder to residents that clinic availability is based on vaccine availability, and demand for appointments outweighs the current supply. When age eligibility opens to a younger group appointments fill up fast, particularly in urban centres like Regina and Saskatoon. There may be additional clinic options in rural and northern communities, and residents are encouraged to consider those alternate locations for immunization.

Please note that travel restrictions related to the increase of variants of concern do not apply to essential medical appointments, such as immunization. Residents may travel to a community outside of their own to attend an immunization clinic, but are advised to not make any other stops or visits aside from the immunization clinic.

The type of vaccine offered at your clinic may vary depending on vaccine supply. All vaccines are safe, effective and approved for use in Canada, and are extremely effective at preventing serious illness and hospitalization.

Drive-Thru & Walk-In Immunization Clinics – scheduled for May 1-3. These clinics are available to anyone 40 years of age and older, or anyone with valid eligibility letters or other proof of employment required for prioritized frontline workers. Additional locations will be added and promoted on Monday, May 3.

New listings and updates highlighted in bold.

Please note vaccine supply remains limited and drive-thru/walk-in clinics may close early when all vaccine is administered. Residents are urged to check the current status of the clinic, age eligibility (now 40+), and wait times, at www.saskatchewan.ca/drive-thru-vax to avoid unnecessary travel.
