Saskatchewan! Healthy people. A healthy province.

Routine vaccines are provided by Public Health and other health-care providers throughout Saskatchewan.  Immunizations have saved more lives in Canada in the last 50 years than any other health measure.  "On-time" and "on schedule" immunization provide the best protection against vaccine-preventable diseases and keep Saskatchewan's population healthy and safe.
