Sarah Belair, GDI Staff Member. Saskatoon Vaccine Clinic.
The Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI) hosted three Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) Drop-In COVID-19 Vaccine clinics this September. Each clinic proved to be a great success!
The GDI campus clinics were held in Saskatoon (Sept 24th), Regina (Sept 24th), and La Loche (Sept 29th). Each clinic was open to the public, students, clients, and staff and provided immunization to anyone who meets the current vaccine eligibility. Clinics provided first, second, or booster doses of the Moderna or Pfizer immunization.
GDI is happy to report that a combined 152 individuals in total received a vaccine from our clinics: 88 in Saskatoon, 15 in Regina, and 49 in La Loche. A majority of the immunizations given were first doses. “It’s always a success when people get vaccinated. We know that vaccines are saving lives. Every person vaccinated is less likely to be hospitalized, and we are all one step closer to having freedom,” stated April Bourgeois, Employment Services Manager and GDI Regina vaccine clinic lead.
A second round of GDI drop-in vaccine clinics are currently being planned and will be announced at a later date. Visit our website at www.gdins.org/covid-19 for all Institute updates regarding the pandemic.
