Routine IT maintenance on Wednesday, June 19 will cause service interruptions between midnight and 6:00am affecting the YourHealthNS app and on-line appointment booking including COVID-19 testing, blood collection, X-Ray, EKG and the Need a Family Practice Registry.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

Public Health providing community-based immunization and testing

Public Health supports access to COVID-19 and influenza testing, as well as influenza and measles immunization across the province.

To help ensure all Nova Scotians have access to these important services, we will be holding testing and immunization clinics next week. All upcoming clinics can be found online at www.nshealth.ca/PHMU.

Clinics with testing provide on-site PCR testing for COVID-19 and influenza and/or give out COVID-19 rapid test kits. Measles testing is not available at any clinics. Unless otherwise noted, drop-ins and booked appointments are welcome. If you’d like to book a testing appointment, visit www.nshealth.ca/coronavirustesting or call 1-833-797-7772.

Clinics with immunization offer COVID-19, influenza, and measles vaccines. Appointments may be booked, drop-in only, or a combination of both. Please see specific clinic details in the listings below. To book an appointment, visit novascotia.ca/vaccination or call 1-833-797-7772.
