Nova Scotia has opened COVID-19 vaccine bookings to those who are 12 and older.

The online booking system quietly opened appointments to the new age group on Thursday morning, though an official announcement was not immediately made.

Before the change, only those 20 and older were eligible to book an appointment.

As of Tuesday, 48.2 per cent of Nova Scotia's population had received at least one dose of vaccine.
