    COVID-19 Vaccine Second Dose Rescheduling

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    June 25, 2021 - 12:36 PM

    Nova Scotians who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine on or before May 20 and are scheduled to receive their second dose on or before September 2 can now reschedule their appointments for earlier dates. Notification emails will go out in batches over several days.

    People who provided an email address at the time of booking will receive a rescheduling notice by email. Anyone who did not provide an email or does not receive a notice can call the toll-free line at 1-833-797-7772 to reschedule or request an email address be added and the rescheduling email issued.

    When rescheduling the second dose, people will select a new date and time at any clinic across the province that has an available appointment. They will also be able to select a different vaccine for their second dose.

    Rescheduling notices for second dose appointments will continue to be sent over the coming weeks as vaccine supply is received.

    Drive-thru clinics in Dartmouth, Truro and Wolfville now accommodate up to four people in one vehicle. At the time of booking you can schedule a maximum four people for one appointment time.

    Today's press release

    Today, June 25, Nova Scotia is reporting 16 new cases of COVID-19 and 15 recoveries.

    Fifteen of the cases are in Central Zone. Eleven are close contacts and four are related to travel. The close contacts are within a linked group of families and do not represent wide community spread.

    The other case is in Eastern Zone and is related to travel.

    Three of the Central Zone cases were reported Thursday, June 24. Two are connected to Joseph Howe Elementary and the other is connected to St. Joseph’s-Alexander McKay Elementary. Although these cases were reported yesterday, because they came in after yesterday’s cut-off for reporting, they will appear on the COVID-19 data dashboard today.

    There is limited community spread in Central Zone. Eastern, Northern and Western Zones continue to be closely monitored for community spread.

    There have been 4,108 cases from March 15 to June 22, 2021. Of those:

    • 26 (0.6 per cent) were fully vaccinated
    • 219 (5.4 per cent) were partially vaccinated
    • 3,863 (94 per cent) were unvaccinated
    There were 252 people hospitalized. Of those:
    • 2 (0.8 per cent) were fully vaccinated
    • 27 (10.7 per cent) were partially vaccinated
    • 223 (88.5 per cent) were unvaccinated
    Twenty-six people died. Of those:
    • 1 (3.8 per cent) was fully vaccinated
    • 3 (11.5 per cent) were partially vaccinated
    • 22 (84.6 per cent) were unvaccinated
    As of today, Nova Scotia has 60 active cases of COVID-19. Of those, two people are in hospital COVID-19 units. The median age of people hospitalized in the third wave is 52 for non-ICU and 55 for people in ICU.

    On June 24, Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 3,321 tests.

    There were 8,909 tests administered between June 18 and 24 at the rapid-testing pop-up sites in Halifax, Dartmouth, Sackville, Sydney, Shelburne, Chester and New Minas.

    As of June 24, 847,830 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. Of those, 147,001 Nova Scotians have received their second dose.

    The province is renewing the state of emergency to protect the health and safety of Nova Scotians and ensure safety measures and other important actions can continue. The order will take effect at noon, Sunday, June 27, and extend to noon, Sunday, July 11, unless government terminates or extends it.

    The problem with trying to get to zero new cases is that any blip like this is going to look catastrophic and the province will never open up again.

    I really wish they would stop reporting cases. Let me know if hospitalizations/deaths are on the rise, and then I'll care.

    this would fuel insane conspiracies. Can you imagine?

    'we must lock down again.. you don't know it but there's a major outbreak going on" :eek3:

    I'm all for getting things back to normal but just because a good portion of the population is partially vaccinated, I don't think we should just declare the pandemic over lol

    I would guess having a certain amount of active cases going on is going to be the norm for some time now (maybe forever). It's gonna be just like another flu (except maybe more dangerous). Nobody will care how many active cases there are once the pandemic is over.

    I didn't say they should declare the pandemic over, I said reduce the reporting to focus on hospitalizations, if increased. As long as they keep announcing case numbers every day, it implies we need to care about every case.

    Considering 80% of cases are either completely asymptomatic or mild -- I find that to not the best metric to be utilizing when concerning the continued lockdowns. I just don't think the data warrants the reaction the world has collectively undertaken

    Then again - I'm not a health care worker so take my opinion with whatever grade of salt you desire.

    Case count is an important data point for the folks behind the scenes making the decisions. Over the course of the pandemic, it's become a rallying cry around the world as the way to monitor things. Now that we're coming out of the pandemic, it's more important to focus/start with things like vaccination rates combined with something like hospitalization / capacity rates. ie: what's the rollup of assessment of risk factors that should be of concern to the general population. At the moment, we post raw data and everyone interprets it differently.

    And unlike other people - I will respect your right to a differing opinion.

    I wonder if the family link is through a school or daycare. 4 reported school cases in the last few days if it spread to their families it wouldn’t take long for the numbers to increase like they did. :bolt:

    That appears to be the approach Alberta is now taking. We are getting updates throughout the week, but the past two weekends, not much. It's kind of nice for us to have some reprieve from it all and actually enjoy a weekend without covid. That being said.... I still check my news feeds every day. Can't wait for that habit to subside.
