There were 509 doses of COVID-19 vaccine administered yesterday in Saskatchewan bringing the total number of vaccines administered in the province to 42,987.   

Due to extreme weather and reporting delays, the number of vaccines administered yesterday was lower than targeted. Second doses in the Far North Central region will continue on Feb. 9 to align with the first dose schedule, and has further contributed to lower administration numbers yesterday.  With this, 96 per cent of the doses received have been administered to date.
There were no doses administered in the North Central zone yesterday. Other zones where vaccines were administered  included Far North West and Far North East.

As well,  an additional 182 doses were administered in the North West zone on Feb. 6.

This week’s Pfizer allocation of 1,950 doses is scheduled to arrive in Prince Albert on Thursday, Feb. 11. 

These are the second doses required to complete the Prince Albert Phase 1 of long-term care and priority population. 

There were 2,337 COVID-19 tests processed in Saskatchewan on Feb. 6.  

As of today there have been 528,916 COVID-19 tests performed in Saskatchewan.
