Johnson & Johnson single dose COVID-19 vaccinations available tomorrow in Saskatchewan

Johnson & Johnson single dose COVID-19 vaccines will be available in Saskatchewan, starting Wednesday.

The initial 2,500 doses allocated to the province will be administered through multiple clinics.

These clinics are scheduled for Regina, Saskatoon, Estevan, Prince Albert, Melfort, Swift Current, Moose Jaw, North Battleford and Lloydminster.

The vaccine is available to residents 18-years-of-age and older.

Due to the limited number of doses received and potential demand, these doses will be available on a walk-in basis at the previously listed locations only.

Appointments cannot be booked online through the Patient Booking System.

Two-weeks after vaccination, you may download and present your MySaskHealth Record QR code or wallet card with required identification as proof of vaccination.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is not available as a booster/third dose.

However, the province says single dose vaccine recipients will be eligible for a booster dose two months following their vaccination, and recipients will have an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) available to them at that time.

A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving one dose of the Johnson & Johnson shot.

All residents are asked to check the SHA clinic location information online for the most current list of locations, dates and times before travelling.
