Children aged 12 and older are being included in Saskatchewan’s COVID-19 vaccination plan.
The moves comes after Health Canada approved yesterday the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for children aged 12 and up.
Saskatchewan says it expects to deliver first vaccine doses to eligible children by the end of June.
The doses are expected to be administered in school-based programs, pharmacies and vaccination clinics.
The province says most Saskatchewan residents over 18 can expect their first shot by the end of May.
As of May 17, anyone 85 and older can also book a required second dose.
