Second AstraZeneca dose now available for some Sask. residents

Second AstraZeneca dose now available for some Sask. residents”

Depending on supply and appointment availability, the government says that dose intervals could be as short as 28 days-although this only becomes a possibility for those getting their first dose later in the summer.

Rwanda needs at least 13 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine to inoculate 60 percent of the population, about 7.5 million people, which it targets to immunise by June 2022.

Reimer said they don't want to provide a second dose that might provide less protection.

The Ontario Government's pharmacy locator website states that once supply is received, first doses of the Moderna vaccine will be available to those 18 and up at Hogan Pharmacy on London Road, Metro Pharmacy on London Road, Rexall on Cathcart Boulevard, the Wal-Mart Pharmacy on Quinn Drive, and Shoppers Drug Mart on Mitton Street.

In a release issued Wednesday night, the Saskatchewan Health Authority said people over the age of 85 who received AstraZeneca for their first dose can now book their second shot of that vaccine.

The province will use a "first-in, first out' method for second dose vaccinations in an effort to allow those who were administered a dose early in the rollout to get their second shot accordingly".

The health authority dispensed AstraZeneca as first doses to around 73,000 Saskatchewan residents. New appointments will automatically replace those previously booked through the provincial system, officials confirmed.

Residents can also keep their original appointment date if they want.

"My promise to Manitobans is that as soon as this United Kingdom data comes out, if we see that using an mRNA (Pfizer or Moderna) vaccine for dose two after AstraZeneca is equivalent or better, we will offer you a dose two", Reimer said.

The AstraZeneca vaccine has been linked to rare, potentially fatal blood clots, prompting several provinces to recently limit its use as they await further research.

Cancer patients, solid organ transplant patients or patients receiving treatment with Rituximab and Ocrelizumab who received a letter confirming their eligibility are now able to get their second AstraZeneca dose as well.

Second dose appointments are now open for anyone who received their first dose between March 10 and March 19 with informed consent due to the 10-week interval.

More than 10,000 people have received their second dose of AstraZeneca so far, officials say.

Quebec is shortening the minimum time between first and second doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to eight weeks, Health Minister Christian Dube announced Thursday.
