All Saskatchewan Residents 12 and Over to Be Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine by May 20

The Saskatchewan government says all residents who are 12 and older will be eligible for the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine by May 20.

The eligible age is set to drop to 32 tomorrow and will go down every second day until May 20.

The province also plans to expand its pharmacy vaccination pilot rollout as more vaccine doses become available.

Officials say they will also be relaxing some of the COVID-19 restrictions in the Regina area on May 17.

 

They say restaurants and licensed establishments will be able to reopen for in-person dining under the same guidelines as the rest of the province.

Saskatchewan reported 156 new cases of COVID-19 Thursday.
