“Nova Scotia will receive its largest shipment of vaccine in the coming weeks,” said Premier Iain Rankin. “When you get an email to reschedule your second dose for an earlier date, do it. The sooner we can get Nova Scotians fully vaccinated, the sooner we will get back to normal.”
There is limited community spread in Central Zone. Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.
“It’s important to continue to get tested for COVID-19, even if you’ve had one dose of vaccine,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “Testing remains key to our COVID-19 response and that will continue as we reopen.”
