The Saskatchewan government is to reveal today details of its rollout plan for the COVID-19 vaccine.
Premier Scott Moe says the province has ultracold storage in place to receive the Pfizer vaccine, which is pending Health Canada approval, with the first doses expected to arrive next week.
The premier says his Saskatchewan Party government will start vaccinations “as quickly as physically possible.”
He says health-care workers and long-term care residents will be first in line to get a shot.
Moe says vaccinations will happen in phases determined by health officials, as more doses will become available in the new year.
The government says getting a COVID-19 vaccine will not be mandatory, but a communications plan will be part of the distribution.
