Nova Scotia Offers COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments to People Aged 35 and Older

Nova Scotia has opened up COVID-19 vaccine appointments for people aged 35 and older.

The 35 to 39 age group is now eligible to get the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines at clinics across the province.

The province says there are about 63,500 eligible people in the age group.


Nova Scotia announced a milestone in its COVID-19 vaccination program on Thursday after administering a 400,000th dose of vaccine.

Health officials said in passing that mark, the province had doubled the number of shots administered in less than a month.

They reported 110 new cases of novel coronavirus on Thursday and 1,572 active cases.
