To the campus community,

Later today we are expecting the Nova Scotia government to announce that StFX has been selected as a venue for one of the province’s COVID-19 Community Vaccination Clinics.

The provincial government recently announced a vaccination strategy that will see residents of Nova Scotia receive the vaccine in descending order based on age, with those aged 80 and above among those receiving the first doses.  It is anticipated that the entire vaccination roll-out will take at least six months, and StFX expects to serve as a clinic venue for the public for the duration of the province’s vaccination timeline. The MacKay room within Bloomfield Centre has been identified as the venue for this clinic.

We are very pleased to be able to offer our facilities as a venue for this critical part of the province’s COVID-19 response. Please note that the site itself will be managed by Nova Scotia Public Health officials, who will also make all decisions regarding vaccination appointments and roll-out. You can find a series of Frequently Asked Questions provided by the province with more information on the government’s vaccine plans by visiting StFX’s COVID-19 web portal:


If you have specific questions on the province’s plans for vaccine roll-out, please contact Nova Scotia Public Health using this email address:
