Only 525 COVID-19 vaccine doses were administered yesterday in Saskatchewan, bringing the total number of vaccines administered in the province to 46,788. With this, 101 per cent of the doses received have been administered to date. This overage is due to efficiencies in drawing extra doses from vials of vaccine received.
Saskatchewan will receive less Moderna vaccine than originally expected for the week of February 22. In light of this reduction, the Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Health Authority will need to review distribution plans.
