    Nova Scotia Resumes Use of AstraZeneca Vaccine

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    June 1, 2021 - 5:18 PM

    Nova Scotia will resume the use of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine for second doses only, effective today, June 1.

    The decision comes after the National Advisory Committee on Immunization updated its guidance on the interchangeability of COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by Health Canada.

    Nova Scotians will have more options when it comes to receiving their second dose:

    • anyone who has received a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna can now choose a second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna
    • anyone who has received a first dose of AstraZeneca can now receive a second dose of AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna
    “I am pleased we are able to provide some certainty for Nova Scotians who have been waiting on a decision regarding their second dose,” said Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health. “Anyone who has received their first dose of AstraZeneca can now receive their second dose with the AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.”

    As part of the province’s plan to reduce the second-dose interval, anyone who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine will receive a notice by email to reschedule their second dose appointment. Notices will be issued starting this week and will continue to be sent out over the coming weeks.

    The province has about 2,000 doses of AstraZeneca set to expire at the end of the month. If this supply is used and there is more demand for AstraZeneca second doses, the province will request more AstraZeneca vaccine from the federal government.

    So without this being taken as an attack, can someone please explain the benefit of prioritizing teachers for vaccinations? I don’t see it increasing the safety of the population which is what the current rollout program is meant to do.Does it make the student population safer?

    It's not really any benefit to anyone but the teachers, however their job forces them to be exposed to large amounts of people who in most cases aren't eligible for the vaccine yet. You shouldn't feel in danger at work no matter what job you're doing.

    I'm fortunate to have very small classes right now, but I teach about 60 kids in total. Let's say that I go to Sobeys and get Covid but I'm not really showing symptoms so I go to work. I'm circulating the classroom, talking with kids 1 on 1, and handing things back and forth, etc. I'm hand sanitizing and distancing as best I can, but let's be honest here. With even 20 kids in my room where the ventilation is awful and only one window opens, it's not a great system and I can only do what I can do. But now those 60 kids are all potential exposures and they bring it home with them. Let's pretend that they are all from single child, dual parent families. Suddenly that group of 60 is bringing it home to 180 people. And if I interact with another staff member, it's potentially a lot more. Vaccines for teachers aren't just for teacher's protection.

    But don’t vaccines only really truly protect the person. Ie, you can still catch and transmit the virus, the vaccine’s main strength is that it minimizes the impact it has on that one person, reducing symptoms and likelihood of hospitalization?
    I think it’s more important to prioritize those such as medical staff who are at a higher likelihood of exposure and who’s absence could put a strain on the ability to care for patients, as well as those in high risk demographics when catching it is more likely to be fatal such as seniors snd immunocompromised. As far as I know there have been very few, if not any cases of a teacher contracting from or passing on the virus to the student population.

    Until just the past let’s say 1-2 months everyone’s job forced them to be exposed to mostly unvaccinated people. And if teachers are let’s say 30-60yrs old (purely speculating here) they would have been eligible to get vaccinated for let’s say an average of 1 month at this point. I think stating to run through every different profession to determine eligibility would have just resulted in pure confusion.

    My job and a lot of other people I know didn't force me to be exposed to anyone. Also, kids not only can't be vaccinated, they can't be counted on to follow the public health measures, especially the younger ones.

    Your job is not the norm. Retail, service, trades, construction, Road sales etc all entailed close contact with others. I’m not suggesting one is better than the other just that with the limited supply we had going into this I think the provincial distribution plan was for the most part, on its face correct. We are still near the bottom for per capita vaccinations but that seems to be more about implementation vs planning.

    To me anyone that has to work in person should be prioritized. Health care isn’t even a question. Why they all don’t have two shots yet is mind blowing. Same for grocery store workers, bus drivers, first responders and teachers. CheddarCheddar teachers are being forced into workplaces that would not be allowed in the private sector number wise. My school is fairly small and between staff and students there are still over 900 people. And you can imagine that every single one of those high school students wear a mask or wears one properly. They also come from families that could be out working, most of them work part time jobs themselves. The schedule was changed this year to 2 2 1/2 hour periods. So I have one class all morning and another all afternoon. I am with up to 32 kids for 2 1/2 hours straight in a closed environment where even half of the social distancing requirement is a dream. The masks are down constantly, they take them off to eat, and are still sharing water bottles and food. Online school isn’t great, but it works for a majority of students. We no longer have that option. Also many of us have other health issues where if we do catch Covid the outcome could be fairly grim. That’s why I get so pissy about it. I’m told to suck it up, schools are extremely safe, and schools don’t spread Covid. As someone with bad asthma (lungs are screwed) and an autoimmune disease I was absolutely terrified to go back in September. We were very lucky and got through until April before the variants took over in schools. I am two weeks since my first shot today and I’m heading into my 22nd year. A majority of staff are much younger than me and some are getting shot one next week. And you know what tops it all off? Central office staff have been WFH, and they have big signs on the doors that only 3 people can enter the huge building at a time. 3. They are safe but citadel, the west have over 1500 kids and 100-150 staff in their buildings. Same when the government couldn’t sit in legislature because it was too dangerous to have 50 people in the large chambers. You want to force us to work and look after your children then give us the vaccines. The whole kids don’t get it, spread it, or get it as bad has run it’s course. We know after this last wave it is untrue. Not to mention we have no idea what the long term effects of this virus are yet, but there seems to be more and more evidence of different long term effects starting to surface. I can not control my risk of exposure. Between myself, my wife, and two kids. We are exposed to over 4000 students alone each school day not including their families or co workers. But hey the Gov says schools are safe. The Gov who is making the safety guidelines and also the employer who is bending guidelines to make schools open.
    There, that’s why I get angry and think teachers should be prioritized. Not prioritized over everyone else but should be give doses first like anyone else that has to work in person :) *edit: also people who were battling cancer and other serious health problems asked for accommodations or even leaves when we reopened. You know what HRs response was? You have PPE (cloth mask and hand sanitizer) how ever the F they are PPE first of all is ridiculous, or the other option was to take unpaid leaves. We were even told not to wear N95s, face shields etc because it could upset the kids. That’s the info that the public never hears because we can not speak out about our workplaces or employer without fear of serious reprimand. I’m at the point now I really don’t care and am tired of the rainbows and unicorn propaganda for lack of a better word. Schools are nothing like they were when we went to school, hell they don’t even look the same as they did 5-10 years ago anymore

    So I’m not familiar with how it works with unions but if Joe Blow works in retail and doesn’t feel safe going to work, he is eligible for the whole CERB thing. I don’t think they get a paid leave either. Are unions excluded from being eligible for CERB?

    I'm not sure TBH. We are not even eligible for EI as teachers. So I assume if someone chose to take an unpaid leave they would not be eligible because they chose not to work and the employer says it's safe because PH says so. We don't fall under labour code believe it or not. We are under the Education Act, so the employer can do whatever they please within some reason. Even our job description states and any other duties the employer sees fit..... And when our Union speaks out for us, a majority of Joe public jumps immediately to the overpaid, underworked, summers off, whiney teacher rhetoric. Sadly this has even been led by the provincial governments to get that sector of the public ramped up, especially within the past 6 years with the Liberals. Mcneil was brutal for it, with many teachers in his immediate family, and he ran on supporting unions and teachers to get elected after the shit show of Dexter years and cuts. So when we do have legitimate concerns, and the NSTU speaks out, they are attacked immediately for it. You know we all hate our jobs and don't want to work lol

    That was an interesting PC. And I especially love the photos they were sharing of schools reopening where a good number of them had kids not wearing masks or distancing. Once again double standards. They continually say that variants are dangerous, you need two shots of vaccine, follow all PH guidelines, and then showcase a bunch of photos with kids without masks huddled together..
