  • all individuals who had their first dose on or before April 7,
  • individuals diagnosed with or being treated for cancer, who will receive a letter of confirmation,
  • individuals who have received solid organ transplants, who will receive a letter of confirmation,
  • residents of NSAD over the age of 40, regardless of when they received their first dose, as long as they have a minimum interval between doses of 21 days for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna.

All residents aged 12 and older are eligible for their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine.  Note that only the Pfizer vaccine has been approved for use with residents aged 12 to 17.

Changing Vaccine Brands Between First & Second Doses
As previously announced the Government of Saskatchewan is following guidance from the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) allowing residents to receive a different brand of vaccine for their second dose than they received for the first, when eligible per provincial criteria for age OR date.

Persons who received a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine may receive either AstraZeneca vaccine or an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) for their second dose, unless contraindicated. Individuals who received a first dose of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) should be offered the same mRNA vaccine for their second dose. If the same mRNA vaccine is not readily available or unknown, another mRNA vaccine can be considered interchangeable and should be offered to complete the vaccine series.

Where to Get Immunized

Saskatchewan residents have multiple options for receiving first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccine when eligible. Once an individual is eligible for immunization they remain eligible and can be immunized at any time.


Drive-Thru & Walk-In Immunization Clinics
Scheduled through June 12.
For the most up-to-date times, clinic addresses and other information please visit www.saskatchewan.ca/drive-thru-vax. Vaccine supply remains limited so as a result drive-thru/walk-in clinics may run out of a specific vaccine brand, or close early, depending on demand.
