A note in the province's COVID-19 news release said the Ministry of Health's dashboard will be unavailable until Monday, as the ministry is updating data reporting systems.

In the coming weeks, Saskatchewan will be receiving fewer Pfizer and Moderna vaccines than they had planned for. 

"Due to this development, some communities originally slated to receive first doses will see delays. Swift Current and Regina were slated to receive vaccine delivery next week for first dose administration to priority groups, but that will be rescheduled," the news release said. 

120 COVID-19 vaccine doses were given Saturday in Saskatchewan. The total number of vaccines that have been given in the province is 35,359.
