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

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

Nova Scotians attending outreach clinics can receive their primary series – first, second and additional doses (if eligible) – or booster doses.

In rare cases, there may be higher demand than usual at vaccine outreach clinics. In these situations, those who are completing their primary series will be prioritized over those receiving booster doses.

The intervals between doses vary based on age, pregnancy and immunocompromised status. Visit nshealth.ca/coronavirusvaccine for the most up-to-date vaccine schedule.

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