Sask. residents aged 85 and older eligible for second dose of COVID-19 vaccine Monday

Residents 85 and over, or anyone who received a shot before February 15th is eligible Monday for their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

First doses continue to be given to those 20 and older.

Vaccination appointments can still be made online or over the phone.

However Regina’s drive-thru clinic is closed until Wednesday.

To date 66 percent of adults 30 and over have received at least one dose of vaccine in Saskatchewan, a date for phase two of the province’s re-opening plan will be announced once that number reaches 70 percent.

However we’re now less than two weeks away from phase one taking effect, which will be on May 30.

Phase one will include private indoor gatherings of ten people.

On Sunday the province announced 167 new cases of COVID-19 and one more death, a person in the age 80 plus category in the Saskatoon zone.

There were also 156 more recoveries, pushing he active case count up slightly to 2,082.
