Delay in Moderna Shipment 

Saskatchewan Health Authority has been made aware of a further delay impacting our next expected shipment of 19,300 Moderna vaccines. This delay stems from the manufacturer and is outside of SHA control.

Some appointments already booked in primarily rural and northern clinics will be impacted. The SHA is still assessing the full impact.  A further public announcement will also be made in the coming days and the SHA will notify impacted patients directly next week and reschedule their appointments. In the interim, no action is required from patients.

 

Vaccine Eligibility

COVID-19 vaccine booking eligibility remains unchanged for April 8, 2021. Eligible groups include all individuals 58 years of age and older, individuals 50 years of age and older living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District, all remaining phase one health care workers, and people with underlying health conditions who are clinically extremely vulnerable through an eligibility letter.
