Vaccine outreach clinics offer drop-ins across the province

Nova Scotia Health’s COVID-19 vaccine outreach clinics will be offering drop-in vaccines next week in all zones to help support vaccine accessibility.
 
Everyone aged 12+ who has completed their primary series can receive a fall 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.
