Covid-19: More than 2.3 million people vaccinated in Dubai

They're still investigating the location for two new cases.

It comes as people aged over 50 who have not yet received a Covid-19 vaccine can get one in their local pharmacy from tomorrow.

There are 104 people in hospital. One case was reassigned to the north central zone and one case, tested out of province, was added to the North Central Zone. There were 284 doses administered with zone of residence pending.

The person who died was in 80-plus age range and from the Saskatoon zone.

Seventy per cent of all adult residents have to have their first shot by June 20 in order to make the mid-July reopening possible.

In response to a query of whether those who have recently recovered from the virus are still eligible for the vaccine, the DHA took to Twitter on Sunday to say that mild cases or cases without symptoms can take the first dose of the vaccine after completion of the 10-day isolation period.

The 2,165 COVID tests done in Saskatchewan on Thursday hiked the province's total to date to 884,309.

A factory that the local company invested in can produce as much as 200 million doses per year and is expected to start manufacturing the vaccines from the fourth quarter or the first quarter of 2022, the health ministry said.

It was concluded that higher memory T and B-cell responses in addition to higher antibody response with a single dose of vaccine given at three to six months after recovery from Covid-19 may be considered at par with two doses of vaccine for individuals already infected with Covid-19. Furthermore, more than 4 lakh (4,48,760) vaccine doses are in the pipeline and will be received by the states/UTs within the next three days, said the Union health ministry. "This will significantly help at a time when there's a shortage of vaccines in the country and more people can be covered using the saved doses".

The report also showed at least 216 people experienced myocarditis or pericarditis after one dose of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, and 573 after the second dose as of May 31.
