To ensure a positive experience for those eligible and minimize waits, please do not attend the clinic unless you have been advised your age is eligible.

If you choose to access the drive-thru rather than keeping your booked appointment, please ensure you cancel online. Visit www.saskatchewan.ca/covid19-vaccine and select 'Book or change my appointment.' You can cancel online even if you booked over the phone. You can also call 1-833-SASKVAX (1-833-727-5829) if you are unable to complete your request online.

Until most Saskatchewan residents are protected by the vaccine, you must continue following all public health orders and guidelines. COVID-19 is everywhere in Saskatchewan. It is the responsibility of every person to strictly adhere to all public health orders and measures, including:

  • Keep 2 metres away from others when in public and wear a mask.
  • Limit gatherings and ensure gathering sizes do not exceed public health orders.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose, mouth or mask with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you are unwell; seek health care services when you help.
  • Regularly monitor your health for any COVID-19 symptoms and seek testing.

Thank-you for your patience as we enhance COVID-19 immunization access across the province in the coming weeks. For more information on COVID-19, including vaccinations, please visit saskatchewan.ca/COVID19.
