Drive-thru, drop-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics are now being offered in more communities in Nova Scotia.

Anyone 18 or older can get their shot at one of the locations. Moderna is the only type of vaccine being given at these clinics, and people must wait until at least 28 days after their first dose before getting a second shot.
