“Immunization clinics will re-open when additional allotments of vaccine arrive in the province,” the SHA said in a news release Sunday.
The drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Prairieland Park will not open Monday after its allotment of vaccine was used up over the weekend.
The clinic, which opened April 5, had been offering vaccines most recently to people aged 48 and older.
The drive-thru clinic at Evraz Place in Regina is also closed. It shuttered its doors Friday evening exhausting its vaccine supply. The Saskatchewan Health Authority said it expected the clinic to remain closed for two weeks and not re-open until May 2.
Immunization clinics will re-open when additional allotments of vaccine arrive in the province, the SHA said in a news release Sunday.
Over the weekend, the province said its next shipment of Moderna vaccines expected to arrive on April 26 has been cut nearly in half. Initially Saskatchewan was set to receive 35,800 doses, but that has now been slashed to 18,800 doses.
As of Sunday evening, drive-thru vaccination clinics remain open in Lloydminster, North Battleford and Prince Albert. Information about drive-thru centre hours and wait times are available on the SHA website.
