Vaccine outreach clinics offering drop-in vaccines across the province next week

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

The outreach vaccine clinics are focused on providing first and second doses of COVID-19 vaccine to Nova Scotians who are not yet fully vaccinated. Booster doses are available at some drop-in vaccine clinics. Information regarding which doses will be offered at each clinic can be found below.

People dropping in to receive their first and second dose of COVID-19 vaccine will also be prioritized over people looking to receive their third (booster) doses.

The interval between first and second doses is 56 days. Individuals can receive their booster dose at least 24 weeks (168 days) after they received the second dose of their primary series. For more information on booster eligibility, visit https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/vaccine/#additional-doses.
