    Today's press release

    Today, July 1, Nova Scotia is reporting four new cases of COVID-19 and nine recoveries.

    There are three cases in Central Zone and one in Northern Zone. All are related to travel.

    The province is also reporting one probable case of COVID-19 connected to Oceanview Education Centre in Glace Bay.

    Based on public health assessment, this case is being treated as a lab-confirmed positive to ensure all precautions are taken.

    Indeterminate test results do not provide a negative or positive. They may occur because someone previously had COVID-19 and the virus is still detectable in their system, or someone has been tested before the virus is fully detectable. In these situations, public health conducts further assessment, including whether someone had or has symptoms or was recently exposed to someone with COVID-19, to inform how the case is treated. Since probable cases are not confirmed to be positive, they are not included in today’s total number of positive cases of COVID-19.

    Public health will be in touch with any close contacts of probable or 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 at the school 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.

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

    As of today, Nova Scotia has 51 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 30, Nova Scotia Health Authority's labs completed 3,731 tests.

    Hearing all of the people with gnarly side effects after the second dose of Moderna is making me nervous. I know it will probably be fine and if I do get sick it will be short lived, but really not looking forward to it. I keep hoping to find some sort of hack to make it better but I just keep finding the boring stuff like "eat healthy, drink water, blah blah blah".

    Almost everyone I know that has had a second dose felt pretty shitty for at least a day afterwards. Which pretty much tracks even with a flu shot, you may or may not feel like shit for a few days

    In the USA there have been some crazy stuff, one I read about last night was a guy had a heart attack 5 mins after getting the second dose. Obviously that is an exception to the norm but still alarming.

    I've been trying to book my first shot for two weeks, can't get an appointment time anywhere, been checking once or twice a day.

    COVID-19 Vaccine Second Dose Scheduling

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    July 5, 2021 - 8:49 AM

    Nova Scotians who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine on or before June 15 can now schedule their second dose.

    Notification emails will go out in batches. People who provided an email address at the time of booking will receive a notice by email to schedule their second dose. 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 schedule or to request an email address be added and the scheduling email issued.

    When scheduling the second dose, people will select a 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.

    Drive-thru clinics in Dartmouth, Truro, New Glasgow and Wolfville now accommodate up to four people in one vehicle. At the time of booking, one to four people can be scheduled for one appointment time.

    The province has updated the Nova Scotia immunization record to include the Province of Nova Scotia logo. Anyone who received a hard copy or printed their record on or before June 30 should request a new copy or reprint a copy using the new format.

    COVID-19 Vaccine Second Dose Scheduling

    Health and Wellness / COVID - 19

    July 7, 2021 - 11:29 AM

    Nova Scotians who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine on or before July 6 will receive an email to schedule their second dose in the coming days. This is the last group of people who will receive an email to schedule or reschedule their second-dose appointment.

    Anyone who receives their first dose on or after July 7 will automatically receive an email to schedule their second dose afterward. Second doses can be scheduled 28 days after first doses.

    Second dose scheduling notices are sent to the email address provided at the time of booking the first dose. 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 schedule or to request an email address be added and the notice issued.

    Drive-thru clinics in Dartmouth, Truro, New Glasgow and Wolfville now accommodate up to four people in one vehicle. At the time of booking, one to four people can be scheduled for one appointment time.

    People who received a dose of COVID-19 vaccine in Nova Scotia and provided an email address and health card number at the time of booking can request the digital record online at: https:/novascotia.ca/immunizationrecord

    Anyone without an email address or health card number on file, or who did not receive an email with their record, can call toll-free 1-833-797-7772 and an operator can issue the record by email or by mail.
