Saskatchewan reported 65 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, bringing the province's total to 47,941 cases throughout the pandemic.

Mr Morrison said that the United Kingdom, despite a high vaccination rate, was still recording high numbers of new cases.

Australian GPs have been given the green light to visit people at home or in disability or aged care facilities, in a bid to fast-track the Covid-19 vaccine rollout.

There are 104 people in hospital.

The latest shots were given in the Saskatoon (3,959), Regina (3,946), southeast (1,278), central-east (1,069), north-central (987), northeast (710), central-west (669), northwest (666), south-central (623), far northeast (414), southwest (396), far northwest (188) and far north-central (12) zones.

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. There were 295 doses administered with zone of residence pending.

Saskatchewan residents 55 years and older are eligible to receive their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, effective 8 a.m. Thursday.

Seventy-nine per cent of those over the age of 40 have received their first dose.

This will significantly help at a time when theres a shortage of vaccine in the country and more people can be covered using the saved doses, Dr Reddy said.

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. According to Union health ministry, more than 1.53 crore (1,53,79,233) Covid vaccine doses are still available with the states/UTs to be administered. India has been witnessing a continuous fall in the active caseload and the current active number of Covid cases stands at 10,26,159 with a net decrease of 54,531 cases in the last 24 hours.
