BIVALENT COVID-19 VACCINE AVAILABILITY EXPANDING
Starting Monday, the Moderna bivalent booster dose will be expanding to all Saskatchewan residents 70-years-old and older, and Saskatchewan residents in First Nation, Metis communities, and the Northern Service Administration District who are 50-years-old and older.
The dose will be available at Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) vaccination clinics and participating pharmacies, according to a release from the Government of Saskatchewan.
The SHA recommends that eligible residents receive the dose at least four months following their last COVID-19 vaccination and can only be used as a booster, not as a first or second shot.
Additional age groups will be eligible to receive the vaccine once more supply is received by the province.
