Drop-in vaccine clinics 

Nova Scotia Health is opening some community vaccine clinics to drop-ins to allow residents easier access to the COVID-19 vaccine for their first or second dose. A person must have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least 28 days ago to be eligible for the second dose. 

Regardless of which vaccine an adult has had for their first dose (Pfizer, Moderna or Astra Zeneca), they can take Pfizer or Moderna as their second dose. 

If you had Pfizer for your first dose, your second dose (Pfizer or Moderna) must be at least 21 days later. If you had Moderna for your first dose, your second dose (Pfizer or Moderna) must be at least 28 days later.

Currently, Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for children 12 to 17.
