Amendment to COVID-19 vaccination policy

The Nova Scotia Health Authority and IWK Health are amending their COVID-19 vaccination policy.

According to a joint statement, effective February 26th, “employees, preferred candidates and on-site medical staff won’t need to submit proof of primary series COVID immunization.

Staff who chose not to receive vaccines or submit proof of immunization, when the policy was implemented, may have the opportunity to return to active employment.”

The organizations say the change is “in response to evolving evidence regarding COVID-19, Omicron sub-variants, protection from vaccine and a
review of vaccination policies across other jurisdictions.”
