A reminder from the SHA- mixing vaccines is a good thing!
This week in Saskatchewan, more clinics will be offering the Moderna vaccine.
For example, you can mix Pfizer with Moderna as your 2nd dose. Or AstraZeneca and a second dose of Moderna.
It can even stimulate a better immune response by mixing. This approach may better protect people from emerging variants as well.

Time to check if there's any standing water around your property.
The city has 12 traps around the city and two traps outside the city. Normally around this time of year we see about 21 mosquitoes per trap.
Right now in the city we're getting around 98 mosquitoes per trap.
To help prevent mosquitoes in neighbourhoods, the city is reminding residents to remove any standing water from their yards, as well as keeping grass short to minimize the chance for mosquitoes populations to grow.
