Saskatchewan surpassed a new vaccine milestone on Friday, as healthcare workers administered the 100,000th dose. They have now administered 100,195 vaccine doses across the province. That includes 298 doses administered in North Central on Friday.

Starting March 15, the province plans to open a drive-thru immunization clinic at the Exhibition Grounds in Regina. The site will provide the new AstraZeneca vaccine to residents who are 64 years old. The vaccine is not approved for use in older populations.

The provincial government plans to open the site to additional age groups in the coming days.

Residents cannot pre-book appointments. The drive-thru site will be on a first come, first serve basis.
