Nova Scotia is expecting to receive upwards of 400,000 doses of Moderna vaccine in the next few weeks. The supply is so big that the Federal Government has approved a request from Nova Scotia for the Canadian Armed Forces to administer vaccine in the province.
Forces’ members will administer doses at a clinic being set up at the Halifax Convention Centre that can see 500-1000 people per day come through the doors.
The military will provide the personnel required until the Canadian Red Cross can take over at a future date.
Nova Scotia Premier, Iain Rankin is due to tour the new immunization facility at the Halifax Convention Centre at 8:00AM on Tuesday morning.
The Premier and Dr. Robert Strang will hold a COVID-19 update Tuesday at 3:00pm.
