SASK. NEARS NEXT MILESTONE IN REOPENING PLAN

Saskatchewan is close to meeting the second vaccination target in its Reopening Roadmap.

As of Saturday, 69 per cent of Saskatchewan residents 30 years and older have received their first dose – one per cent shy of the 70 per cent threshold for Step Two of the reopening plan.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe tweeted out a message for the province on Saturday, encouraging anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated to do so.

“If you know someone 30+ who hasn’t gotten vaccinated yet, please share this post and ask them to go get their shot,” Moe said in the tweet.
