There were 3,232 doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered yesterday in Saskatchewan – the highest one-day total to date. This brings the total number of vaccines administered in the province to 20,159.
The doses were administered in the following zones: Regina (453), Saskatoon (749), North Central (766), Far North West (77), Far North East (42) and South East (1145). No data for January 15 or 16 from the Far North Central is available at this time.
During the weekend, 975 doses of the Pfizer vaccine were sent to North Battleford. Clinics begin on Monday for priority health care workers. On Tuesday, the vaccine will be provided to long-term care residents and staff in North Battleford, Wilkie and Lloydminster.
Due to work to expand its European manufacturing facility, production of the Pfizer vaccine will be impacted for a few weeks. Pfizer is temporarily reducing deliveries, potentially by half, to all countries receiving vaccine manufactured at this facility, including Canada. In Saskatchewan, vaccines will continue to be administered as received according to priority sequence.
