Second dose tomorrow
Even though I was nervous about my first dose, I'm looking forward to rebooking my second now! My original date is September 8, and I'd rather not get the second shot a week before my due date in case it makes me feel like crap as I'm sure I will feel like crap already haha. Just waiting for the email
i called the number, on hold for 40 min snd told the lady to book me the soonest one anywhere in HRM

If anyone wants their second appt cancelled before your email arrives I can do it if you are ok to share your last four digits of your health card with me lol
oh nice!!! That's good to know, thank you. Did you receive an email first or did you just call once you knew you were eligible based on first dose date?
You just need to get that second Sept appt cancelled and then you can re-book freely.

Officially on the Astroderna team!

Nova Scotia Starting Third Phase of Reopening, Opening Border to Canada
Health and Wellness / COVID - 19
June 29, 2021 - 3:08 PM
Premier Iain Rankin and Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia’s chief medical officer of health, announced today, June 29, that Nova Scotia will start the third phase of its reopening plan on Wednesday, June 30, including opening the border to all Canadians.
“We’ve all been looking forward to the day when we can once again welcome all Canadians to visit our beautiful province,” said Premier Rankin. “Thanks to the hard work of Nova Scotians and our robust border and testing strategies, we’re now in a position to do that. Families and friends can see each other again, businesses can operate with less restriction and visitors can safely enjoy summer in Nova Scotia while still following public health measures.”
Residents of Atlantic Canada will be able to travel to Nova Scotia without having to self-isolate. If they are already in Nova Scotia, they can stop isolating on June 30.
People from other provinces and territories can come to Nova Scotia for any reason. They need to complete the Nova Scotia Safe Check-in form, upload their proof of vaccination electronically and be prepared to show it if asked by border officials.
The requirement to self-isolate or not is based on their vaccination status:
two doses of vaccine at least 14 days before arriving in Nova Scotia – people will not have to self-isolate; testing when they arrive is recommended
one dose of vaccine at least 14 days before arrival and those who had a second dose less than 14 days before arrival – people must self-isolate for at least seven days and cannot leave isolation until they get two negative tests results while in Nova Scotia; tests should be on day one or two and on day five or six after arrival
no vaccine – people who have not had any vaccine and those who had a first dose within 14 days of arrival must isolate for 14 days; testing at the beginning and end of their isolation continues to be recommended
Anyone from outside Atlantic Canada who is already in Nova Scotia and isolating can switch to isolation based on the above vaccination status and testing policy on June 30.
“As we start welcoming people from across the country, we are also now in a position to reopen further within Nova Scotia with larger gathering limits and higher capacity for businesses,” said Dr. Strang. “We still need physical distance and masks in many settings, and everyone should get their first and second doses of vaccine as soon as possible and continue getting tested regularly.”
Each phase of the reopening plan is based on COVID-19 activity, hospitalizations, vaccination rates and continued testing. Heading into Phase 3, 73 per cent of all Nova Scotians have had one or more doses of vaccine, cases are typically in single digits each day and hospitalizations are decreasing. Testing volume is down slightly at an average of more than 5,300 per day and there is capacity to increase if needed.
Effective 8 a.m., June 30, the following restrictions are being eased provincewide:
informal gatherings can include a household plus 10 people indoors, or 25 people total outdoors without physical distance
faith gatherings, weddings, funerals and associated receptions and visitation hosted by a recognized business or organization can have 50 per cent capacity to a maximum of 100 people indoors or 150 people outdoors

New COVID-19 Case at Glace Bay Elementary
Education and Early Childhood Development / COVID - 19
June 29, 2021 - 4:26 PM
Nova Scotia is reporting a COVID-19 case today, June 29, connected to Glace Bay Elementary in Eastern Zone.
This case was reported earlier today in the COVID-19 daily numbers release and on the COVID-19 data dashboard.
The school will be closed to students Wednesday, June 30, and will undergo a deep cleaning. The school year ends June 30, and staff, students and families will receive an update about retrieval of belongings.
Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of positive cases and advise of next steps, including testing. Everyone who is a close contact will be notified, tested and asked to self-isolate for 14 days.
Out of an abundance of caution, public health is recommending that all students and staff be tested for COVID-19, whether or not they have symptoms. No self-isolation is required while they wait for test results unless they have been identified as a close contact by public health or have symptoms.
My arm is so sore this time lol
I have a tiny bit of soreness but moved it around a lot right after the jab so it’s pretty good today.
I heard that was nonsense... maybe I should have done it anyways lol
I went home and worked out after i feel 100% and shoulder is only sore at injection site.. you probably should have lol
Yeah the first time my arm was fucked...this time I am gonna move wheelbarrow loads of gravel just to work it.
it’s way less sore than the first time
Moving it around now a bunch if that helps lol
I mean, if a sore arm is my only side effect, giddy up
Got my second shot Monday night, Moderna. Tuesday 3pm it hit me like a ton of bricks. Same as the Astra shot, tired, sore, achy, warm/chills. Went to bed around 8pm, got up feeling fine as kind today
You're like the 5th person i "know" that has said that about moderna. Pfizer vaccine for me and nothing really happened. Kind of a sore arm like my flu shots, but that's it. Still waiting for my second, going to stick with Pfizer but still surprised by how anyone I "know" echoes what you said.
I thought i was going to get floored because I had nothing from the first shot.. and I was 28 days after first and people were saying the closer together the worst things were but I got nothing so i'll take it
[ press release not yet available ]
Since yesterday's update:
27,815 vaccine doses administered
4/3942 = 0.1% positive rate
wow that’s amazing
I did mine at the convention Center and they had it down to a science. In and out no problem
hit me around 5. I feel like I’m hungover and I’m going from being too way too hot to way too cold

just pour some disaronno all over your body and you'll be right as rain my child
