Regina – Premier Scott Moe pushed back Friday against the federal health minister’s suggestion of mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations like we reported earlier Jason Kenney already says NO to mandatory vaccination.
In a statement, Moe said the provincial government will not be implementing the mass vaccination mandates on their citizens, which was suggested earlier in the day by Jean-Yves Duclos during a media conference held by the federal government.

In a statement from Scott Moe issued shortly after the Minister’s comments – the Premiere said the province has no plans to implement mandatory vaccinations. Stating that in Saskatchewan getting vaccinated is a personal choice and not one to be imposed by the government.
“The Government of Saskatchewan will not be implementing mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations. While we strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated to protect yourself and others from serious illness, in Saskatchewan this is a personal choice, not one imposed on you by the government. ”
Again this is not about the vaccine but it is about freedom of choice. Although Moe is encouraging people to get vaccinated, he says his position is firm.
