People 60 and older can now get vaccinated for COVID-19

Starting today, April 19, people 60 and older can book appointments at community clinics and participating pharmacy and primary care clinics offering the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. 

Most community clinics and participating pharmacies have available appointments for this age group. More appointments are being added continuously to new and existing clinics.

Some AstraZeneca vaccine appointments remain open for people who are 55 to 64 years old.

Appointments for all three vaccines will be released continuously as vaccine supply is confirmed.

All Nova Scotians are encouraged to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they are eligible.

COVID-19 vaccination appointments must be made online at or by phone at 1-833-797-7772. Appointments cannot be booked directly through a community clinic, pharmacy or physician. Walk-ins will be turned away.
