Vaccine Update: Quick Facts

Activities are underway to provide Covid-19 vaccination clinics within Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities.

Vaccines are now available in Nova Scotia to immunize high risk groups.

Vaccine coordination is under the direction of Nova Scotia Health.

LTC facility clinics will focus on immunizing residents and designated caregivers.

Both Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines are being used in the province.

Residents at Seaview Manor will be vaccinated on site by our RNs.

A consent for vaccine administration and the collection, use and disclosure of Race and Indigeneity as the Public Health Canada wants to ensure that vaccines are being administered in an equitable manner.   You may choose not to provide Race and Indigeneity  data.

We’ll be reaching out to you to collect consent in the event your loved one is unable to provide the consent.

The Minister of Health has approved use of the CANImmunize Clinic Flow application to support Covid-19 immunization clinics in LTC facilities.  CANImmunize is a standalone application(i.e. Software) designed specifically for setting up and managing immunization clinics.  It also captures race and indigeneity data. Clinic related information is accessible only to authorized users (i.e. Clinic Immunizers) participating in the clinic.  

Stay tuned.. as we learn more we’ll do our very best to keep you updated.
