The Saskatchewan Health Authority has said that the number of area residents receiving their COVID-19 vaccinations has dropped, and so Vaccination Clinics will vary across the southwest.
In Swift Current, the vaccination site at Central Avenue North has been closed and vaccinations are now available on Tuesdays at the Swift Current Mall.
Doctor David Torr, is the Area Department Lead for Integrated Rural for the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, and Medical Health Officer for the southwest. He said, "The changes are because we've had some reduction in attendance. We certainly had a spike when we announced the 70 and over boosters, and then again when we had the 50 years and older boosters, and that was good. But then, after that the numbers have sort of dwindled."
The SHA says all appointments need to be booked and they are encouraging everyone to receive their shots, especially older populations who are eligible for boosters and anyone who has not yet been vaccinated.
Doctor Torr added that people should watch for advertising on upcoming clinics being held in their areas.
