Immunization is available to anyone who meets current vaccine eligibility. You will be turned away from the clinic if you are not yet eligible.

Appointments cannot be pre-booked. They are first-come, first-served only​. A valid health card and/or identification will be requested for each person getting the vaccine.

On its website, the Saskatchewan Health Authority says it is likely you will encounter some wait times​.

People who come are also asked to wear a short-sleeved shirt, wear a mask at all times and clean your hands upon entrance.

It is important to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres (six feet) from others - except those you live with.

Expect to stay 15 minutes after receiving your vaccine.​

If you have had any type of immunization in the last 14 days, you will not be eligible to receive the COVID-19 immunization.

If you have had COVID-19, it is recommended that you wait 90 days to receive your immunization.

If you are currently ordered to be in isolation due to COVID-19, you will not be eligible to receive immunization.

If you are an eligible health care worker or clinically extremely vulnerable, you MUST bring documented proof of eligibility.​
