What to expect at the vaccine clinic

To help you prepare for  your vaccination at the IWK vaccination clinic, please watch this short video below which will walk you through what to expect when you arrive.



What you need for your appointment

  • bring your Nova Scotia health card — to both appointments
  • bring a mask — to both appointments
  • wear a short-sleeve shirt or one with sleeves that are easy to roll up

You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the clinic. You may bring one support person to help you if needed. Due to space constraints we’d ask that you only bring a support person if required. They do not get the vaccine at this time. They must wear a mask. They must feel well on the day of your appointment.


Are you feeling well on the day of your appointment?

If not, please cancel. Do not come to the clinic. 

You will be screened at the door. You may be turned away if you show signs of illness or symptoms of COVID-19. 

You will need to wear a mask at all times while in the IWK Health Centre.


If you have questions about appointments, transportation, clinic locations and types of vaccines, including AstraZeneca, visit the Nova Scotia Government’s COVID-19 website.
