Saskatchewan residents 60 and older will be able to book their COVID vaccines Wednesday

Saskatchewan residents 60 years of age and older will be able to book for their appointment to get the COVID-19 vaccine starting Wednesday morning.
Currently, the Saskatchewan Health Authority only allows those 62 years of age and older to book online or over the phone.

Residents living in the Northern Saskatchewan Administration District over the age of 50, all Phase One priority health care workers can book, as well as those who are considered clinically extremely vulnerable.

Those wishing to book can follow the link here, or can call 1-833-SASK VAX (727-5829).

Meanwhile, the Saskatchewan Health Authority is announcing that vaccine appointments across the province at a number of clinics are having to be pushed back.  The reason for that is a delay by Moderna is shipping some vaccine.  This means a shipment of 21,300 doses that were to be here this week would be delayed for six days.

The SHA says it is going to contact those whose appointments are affected, but a majority will be getting notification either through e-mail or text about when their rescheduled appointment will be.

Appointments at the 41 clinics had been booked for a time-frame between March 31 and April 6.  Those dates have been pushed back between four to ten days.
