Vaccine outreach clinics offer drop-ins across the province

Everyone aged 12+ who has completed their primary series can receive their next dose of COVID-19 vaccine, regardless of the number of booster shots already received, as long as the minimum number of days have passed since their last vaccine.

Vaccine outreach clinics may offer the following vaccines. See list for details:

  • Pfizer bivalent vaccine 12+
  • Pfizer - Primary series 12+
  • Pfizer - Primary series and booster - 5-11-years-old
  • Pfizer infant - Primary series - six months to 4-years-old

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