Residents ages 85 and over from across the province are now able to book their COVID-19 vaccine appointment online or over the phone.
Saskatchewan’s new online booking system can be found at www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19-vaccine, and is now accepting vaccine appointment bookings for residents 85 years of age and older. Alternatively, patients can speak by phone to a booking agent for help with their appointment. The Vaccine Call Centre is operating 8 am to 11 pm, 7 days per week and can be accessed by calling 1-833-SASK-VAX (1-833-727-5829).
Family and friends who aren’t yet eligible can also book on behalf of someone who is eligible.
To book an appointment using the new online system, you will need:
a valid health card; and
a cell phone number or email address where notifications will be sent.
Government is reiterating that it is critical that residents that are currently not eligible do not call the phone line or attempt to book through this process at this time. Doing so will unnecessarily stress critical infrastructure needed for these services and could result in delays getting eligible recipients immunized.
In the coming days based on an available supply of vaccine, further age groups eligible will be announced to book their appointments.
