Every province and territory has their own plan for vaccinating the people who live there. In Saskatchewan, the SHA (Saskatchewan Health Authority) is in charge, and are working in communities to make it as easy as possible for people to get vaccinated.
Regina has drive-through clinics, walk-in clinics in many locations, and many pharmacies can give vaccines as well.
