"Saskatchewan residents are being vaccinated as fast as supply allows and is happening in phases, so people most at risk get it first," the SHA said in a news release. "More groups will be eligible as Saskatchewan receives more doses. Once you become eligible, you will always be eligible to receive immunization."

Saskatchewan has received 15,500 doses of AstraZeneca-Oxford's COVID-19 vaccine. The drive-thru clinic will remain open until all doses have been administered.
