Nova Scotia has expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines to those ages 20-24.

Appointments for Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were available through the province's vaccine booking website Tuesday morning.

Appointments for vaccines at community clinics and designated pharmacies will be released continually as vaccine supply is confirmed.

Until Tuesday morning, vaccines were only open to those 25 and older, or those who work in jobs such as health care or long-term care.

The province has been committed to an age-based vaccine rollout, initially offering vaccines to older groups and gradually dropping the age limit.

Appointments for the vaccine must be made online or by phone at 1-833-797-7772.
