    I booked my vaccine today for next week. I'm still nervous, but hope this is the right thing. If there is a chance I can pass on some protection to my baby, that would be great. I know kids and even older babies usually do okay with COVID, but newborn immune systems are more fragile and it would be one less thing to worry about. My second appointment is booked the week before my due date so....should be interesting, haha.

    Awesome, congratulations!

    I don’t know if your doc or OB has discussed it with you yet, but they highly recommend getting a TDap vaccine with every pregnancy to give passive immunity to the baby for pertussis. Ideally it is between 27-32 weeks to allow best passage to them.

    They want a minimum of 14 days on either side of the COVID vaccine and any other vaccine so your timings should be great!

    I'm glad the timing worked out, because my OB hasn't said anything about other vaccines yet! My next appointment is in mid-June, so I can update about my COVID vaccine and ask about these other ones. Thank you for this info!

    Today, May 19, Nova Scotia is reporting two deaths related to COVID-19. A man in his 60s has died in Eastern Zone and a woman in her 60s has died in Central Zone.

    There have now been 74 COVID-19 related deaths in Nova Scotia.

    Nova Scotia is also reporting 83 new cases of COVID-19 and 164 recoveries today.

    There are 59 cases in Central Zone, 19 in Eastern Zone, three in Western Zone and two in Northern Zone.

    An additional patient in a non-COVID unit at the Halifax Infirmary site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre has tested positive for COVID-19. The other patients in the non-COVID unit have tested negative and are being closely monitored. As a precaution, Nova Scotia Health Authority is testing staff and doctors who have worked in the unit.

    Two of the cases in the Eastern Zone involve a resident and outside agency staff member at Harbourstone Enhanced Care, a long-term care facility in Sydney. A third case in the Eastern Zone involves a staff member of My Cape Breton Home for Seniors in North Sydney. Staff and residents in the impacted units of both facilities are being tested and residents are being cared for in their rooms. Most residents of both facilities have received both doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

    One of the cases in Central Zone involves a staff member at The Ivy Meadows, a long-term care facility in Beaver Bank. This is the second case involving a staff member at this facility. Most residents have been fully vaccinated with two doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

    There is community spread in Central Zone. The Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread. There are some areas of concern, particularly in Sydney, Bridgewater and the Annapolis Valley from New Minas to Kentville. Testing has been increased in these areas.

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 1,262 active cases of COVID-19. There are 101 people in hospital, including 20 in ICU. The median age of people hospitalized in the third wave is 57 for non-ICU, and 59 for people in ICU.

    Restrictions Extended into June

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    May 19, 2021 - 3:48 PM

    Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, May 19, that current public health restrictions will remain in place across Nova Scotia until at least the second week of June.

    They also announced that public and private schools will continue at-home learning for the remainder of the school year.

    “We are making progress with decreasing our case numbers, but that progress is slower than we would like,” said Premier Rankin. “In order to get back to more normal living this summer, I’m asking Nova Scotians to stick with our restrictions a little longer, get vaccinated as soon as you can and stay close to home. That includes limiting your activities for the long weekend.”

    Provincial park campgrounds are currently closed. Private campgrounds can only be open for seasonal campers. No short-term camping is allowed at this time.

    People can go to their cottage or seasonal campsite outside their community only if they are staying there for the season. They cannot go back and forth between these places and their primary residence.

    “I encourage Nova Scotians to get outdoors and enjoy parks, trails and beaches within their own communities as the weather warms up,” said Dr. Strang. “We also welcome Nova Scotia residents coming home and are making their application process a bit easier.”

    Permanent residents of Nova Scotia will no longer have to wait for approval when they apply to enter the province via the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in. They will receive an automatic conditional approval, but still must show proof of permanent residency at the border. This change will be made in the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in system overnight.

    Rotational workers need to do the full application process for their first trip back to Nova Scotia since May 14. They will be asked for documentation showing they are a rotational worker and the name and location of their worksite. For each subsequent trip, they will get approval faster because they will have been already confirmed as rotational workers.

    Moving to Nova Scotia, Travelling from Prince Edward Island

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    May 21, 2021 - 2:14 PM

    The Nova Scotia government is expanding the criteria for people who are moving to the province and adding flexibility for travel from Prince Edward Island.

    “We are responding to concerns we have heard from people who are moving here,” said Premier Iain Rankin. “Our restrictions are remaining for a little longer as we try to crush this third wave but hopefully these modifications at the border and for travel from PEI for work, school and veterinary services will provide relief.”

    People can apply to move to Nova Scotia with immediate family members who live in the same household if they have:

    • a purchase and sale agreement for a property purchase showing that an offer has been accepted on or before May 1, 2021
    • proof of ownership of property in Nova Scotia, and either a purchase and sale agreement for a property or notice of termination of their lease agreement in another province or territory
    • a minimum one-year lease signed on or before May 1, 2021
    • a letter of acceptance for new employment in Nova Scotia that cannot be done virtually or deferred; the letter must be dated on or before May 7, 2021
    People who meet this criteria must apply via the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in and have a plan for the required 14-day self-isolation. Due to volume, it will take a week to review applications and only people who plan to arrive before July 1 will be considered at this time. People who plan to come later should wait until about a week before their travel date to apply.

    People should not start their travel to Nova Scotia without having received approval in advance. They will be denied entry if they do not have approval.

    “This change in criteria for moving to Nova Scotia will help people who are caught in the middle of real-estate transactions, while still limiting the flow of people into the province,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “We’re also supporting people who need to travel frequently between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, with recognition of the need to access services from the Atlantic Veterinary College in particular.”

    The Nova Scotia-New Brunswick travel protocol is now expanded to include Prince Edward Island. People can use the protocol to travel between Nova Scotia and these two provinces for work, school, child care or veterinary services. They do not complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in and do not have to self-isolate when they enter or return to Nova Scotia.
