Dr. Denise Werker, the province's deputy medical health officer, says the province is at a turning point.
Werker says if people aren't immunized soon, they might not be protected for a second wave of flu in March, because the vaccine needs two weeks to work.
The number of flu-related deaths remains unchanged in Saskatchewan from last week and sits at 16.
Werker says there are still people in intensive care and one of the new admissions is a child under the age of five.
