PSA: Nova Scotia Health Vaccine Outreach Clinics offering drop-in vaccines in Central and Northern zones

Next week Nova Scotia Health’s COVID-19 vaccine outreach clinics will be offering drop-in vaccines in Central and Northern zones to help support vaccine accessibility.

Everyone aged 12 years and older who has completed their primary series will be eligible to receive a fall dose of COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of the number of booster doses already received, so long as the minimum number of days has passed since their last COVID-19 vaccine. Eligibility will open following an age-based approach.

Those currently eligible for a fall dose are adults aged 18 and older. Fall doses for adolescents aged 12 to 17 will be opened at a later date.

The following doses will be available at Vaccine Outreach Clinics:
• Moderna - Bivalent Vaccine - 18+
• Pfizer - Primary Series - 12+
• Pfizer – Primary Series and Booster - 5-11 (age 5+ clinics only)

The intervals between doses vary based on age and personal risk factors. Visit nshealth.ca/coronavirusvaccine for the most up-to-date vaccine schedule.

COVID-19 vaccine clinics for various brackets (anyone ages 5+, just for kids 5-11, ages 12+, ages 18+) are listed chronologically under each zone below. Vaccine outreach for ages 6 months to 4 years will be added as this service becomes available.
