SASKATOON - With clear evidence that Saskatchewan’s vaccine rollout is slowing down and falling behind other provinces, NDP Leader Ryan Meili called on the Sask. Party government to adopt a “Last Mile Lottery” to increase vaccine uptake in Saskatchewan.
“We all want to put this pandemic behind us as quickly as possible. Families have sacrificed so much and we need to pull out all the stops to go the last mile and reach herd immunity as quickly as possible,” said Meili. “An incentive like the one we propose here today would be an excellent way to get all hands on deck - especially as we are still in a race between the vaccines and the variants, particularly the Delta variant that is more aggressive and resistant.”
