Vaccine outreach clinics offer drop-ins in Central, Northern & Eastern zones

Nova Scotia Health’s COVID-19 vaccine outreach clinics will be offering drop-in vaccines next week in Central, Northern 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 age brackets (anyone aged 5+, just for kids 5-11, aged 12+) are listed below chronologically under each zone. Vaccine outreach for ages 6 months to 4 years will be added as this service becomes available.
