People Aged 45 to 49 Now Eligible for Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines

Starting today, May 7, people aged 45 and older can book appointments for the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines at clinics across the province.

Appointments for COVID-19 vaccines in community clinics and participating pharmacies will be released on a continuous basis as vaccine supply is confirmed.

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

The province’s goal continues to be to immunize as many Nova Scotians as quickly as possible, based on age, to reach a high rate of population immunity.

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.

Quick Facts:
— there are about 65,000 eligible Nova Scotians in the 45 to 49 age group
— this group has been able to book appointments for the AstraZeneca vaccine since April 30
