SHELBURNE COUNTY EAST EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
WATER CONSERVATION IN PREPARATION FOR DROUGHT
In light of the potential for another drought season, we would like the public to start preparing now by conserving water and thinking of ways to be more self-sufficient in water collection.
Shelburne County East Emergency Management will continue to explore options for additional supports for sustainable access to water in our communities. As in previous years, public water collection opportunities will be made available as the need arises, based on the SCEEMO Drought Plan.
Housing Nova Scotia also offers a variety of programs for emergency repairs as well as repairs related to health and safety. More information on these programs can be found at: https://housing.novascotia.ca/.../financial-assistance... .
Drought conditions are expected to continue annually and may begin earlier and/last longer each year. There are some proactive activities you can do around your home to conserve water and prepare for a water shortage. Everyone is encouraged to collect rainwater by capturing downspout run off or large container collection. For a list of conservation ideas that you can do at your home, please visit https://novascotia.ca/nse/water/docs/WaterConservation.pdf .

Nova Scotia will resume the use of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine for second doses only, effective today, June 1.
The decision comes after the National Advisory Committee on Immunization updated its guidance on the interchangeability of COVID-19 vaccines approved for use by Health Canada.
Nova Scotians will have more options when it comes to receiving their second dose:
-- anyone who has received a first dose of Pfizer or Moderna can now choose a second dose of either Pfizer or Moderna
-- anyone who has received a first dose of AstraZeneca can now receive a second dose of AstraZeneca, Pfizer or Moderna
As part of the province's plan to reduce the second-dose interval, anyone who received a first dose of AstraZeneca vaccine will receive a notice by email to reschedule their second dose appointment. Notices will be issued starting this week and will continue to be sent out over the coming weeks.
La Nouvelle-Écosse reprend l'utilisation du vaccin contre la COVID-19 d'AstraZeneca pour les secondes doses seulement, et ce, à compter d'aujourd'hui, le 1er juin.
La décision intervient après que le Comité consultatif national de l'immunisation a mis à jour ses directives sur l'interchangeabilité des vaccins contre la COVID-19 homologués par Santé Canada.
Les Néo-Écossais et Néo-Écossaises auront donc plus de choix quant à leur seconde dose.
-- Toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin de Pfizer ou de Moderna peut désormais obtenir une seconde dose soit du vaccin de Pfizer, soit du vaccin de Moderna.
-- Toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca peut désormais obtenir une seconde dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca, de Pfizer ou de Moderna.
Dans le cadre du plan du gouvernement provincial visant à réduire la période entre les deux doses, toute personne qui a reçu une première dose du vaccin d'AstraZeneca recevra un avis par courriel pour changer la date de son rendez-vous pour recevoir sa seconde dose.
Des avis seront envoyés à compter de cette semaine et continueront d'être émis au cours des prochaines semaines.
