Starting today, May 11, people aged 40 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.

Appointments cannot be booked directly through a community clinic, pharmacy or physician. Walk-ins will be turned away.
