The Government of Saskatchewan today announced the start of vaccination in the province for children aged six months to five years.
The province says it will receive a limited supply of about 13,000 vaccine doses in its first delivery, so appointments will open first to children most at risk of serious consequences from COVID-19. . Priority is given to children aged six months to five years who are moderately to severely immunocompromised, with appointments available from today.
Beginning at 8:45 a.m. this morning, parents and guardians of eligible immunocompromised children can schedule an appointment by calling 1-833-Sask-VAX (1-833-727-5829) only. If there are other children six months to five years old in this household, appointments for all of these children can be made at this time.
Starting tomorrow, parents and guardians of all children aged six months to five years will be able to book appointments online at saskatchewan.ca/COVID19-vaccine starting at 8:00 a.m. or by calling 1-833-Sask-VAX (1-833-727-5829) at 8:45 a.m.
SHA clinics will begin tomorrow at select sites across the province. The Saskatchewan Health Authority expects it to fully administer all 13,000 doses before the next vaccine delivery in August. There will be a variety of clinics, including walk-in, by appointment, and with extended hours.
