REGINA -- Saskatchewan will open its first AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine clinic for 64 year olds in Regina on Monday.

There will be a pilot drive-thru immunization clinic at the Exhibition grounds for 64 year olds only and Phase 1 health care workers. The site will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and will operate on a first-come, first-served basis. The clinic will be open on Sunday for health care workers only.
