With increasing COVID-19 transmission in all parts of Saskatchewan, Public Health officials are reminding residents that the best practices continue to protect against transmission, including the Delta Variant.
They add that vaccination is the best option to prevent transmission as well as serious illness and death.
Saskatchewan has announced that they will begin offering vaccination boosters to eligible persons starting Tuesday September 7.
Those persons eligible to receive booster immunizations beginning Tuesday include residents of long-term care and personal care homes, transplant recipients, recipients of stable, active treatment such as chemotherapy, and recipients of an anti-CD20 agent.
Booster doses will be administered at least eight weeks following receipt of the second Pfizer or Moderna dose.
Eligibility letters will be sent either by your physician or from the Ministry of Health Drug Plan Branch.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority and pharmacies in the province are also continuing to provide vaccination clinics for all residents of the province.
