All drive-thru and walk-in clinics will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that there are a small number of hybrid booked appointment/walk-in clinics, which is indicated at the clinic location – no appointment is necessary to attend these clinics. Residents can attend at their convenience.  However, if you have a booked appointment and choose to attend a drive-thru or walk-in clinic, please ensure you cancel this appointment to allow others eligible to take your place. 

Please ensure you check the most up-to-date information at www.saskatchewan.ca/drive-thru-vax before attending any drive-thru/walk-in clinic. Vaccine supply remains limited so as a result drive-thru/walk-in clinics may close early, depending on demand.
