The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) states that any legal statement it receives objecting to COVID-19 immunizations will not be recorded in its database and will be destroyed.
The province introduced measures on October 1 that require proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter a number of facilities and events.
It also allows companies that are not covered by the public health measure to sign up.

The SHA said immunization in Saskatchewan is voluntary and that the measures introduced on October 1 are not regulations, statutes or injunctions under the Public Health Act.
“Some individuals choose to interpret public health measures and the above rules as a mandatory immunization policy and have made an effort to secure statements that oppose immunization,” SHA said in a statement.
“Some Saskatchewan oath commissioners also charge a fee for submitting these statements for consideration.”

The SHA said that statements serve no purpose as immunizations are not mandatory and that no exception is required.
“If a resident chooses not to be vaccinated or cannot be vaccinated, presentation of a negative test will be the accommodation to access the non-essential businesses and services as described in the Public Health Order,” SHA said.
“No other documentation is accepted in lieu of evidence of vaccination or a negative test result.”
It asks people who are considering submitting a statement not to do so.
