2nd COVID-19 booster available for those 18+ in Sask. as of today – CBC

3rd dose must have been received at least 4 months prior

Aug 15, 2022

Starting today, Saskatchewan residents over the age of 18 can receive their second booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine as long as they received their third dose at least four months prior.

“In August, as our transmission rates are slightly picking up, there was interest in people who are 18 to 49 in getting that second booster,” Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Saqib Shahab said.

“With people going back to work or school after the summer, it will be in our interest to get the second booster dose. The vaccines will start Monday.”

Shahab said the province currently has enough supply of vaccines to administer the second booster doses, which will provide additional protection.

He said immunity is shown to wane over time and the provision of booster doses is shown to provide increased protection against serious illness, hospitalization and death.
