Special Vaccine Update

Vaccines for 60+ Open Tomorrow  

Beginning April 7, all Ottawa residents age 60 and over can begin booking appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. In Ottawa, there are two options for booking, depending on where you live, so please consider the options carefully to determine which one is right for you. 

 1) All Ottawa residents 60 and older (born in 1961 or earlier) regardless of where they live in the city can book an appointment through the Province of Ontario’s online booking system. 

Visit http://www.ontario.ca/bookvaccine to access the provincial booking system or call the booking line
at: 1-833-943-3900 between 8 am and 8 pm, seven days a week.  You can also contact the Information Line at 1-888-999-6488. Only book or call if you are eligible.  

Appointments will be available at the following community vaccination clinics:  

  • Nepean Sportsplex
  • Ruddy Family YMCA-YWCA
  • Eva James Memorial Community Centre
  • City Hall
  • Horticulture Building
  • St-Laurent Complex
  • Canterbury Recreation Complex

 2) Residents over 60 in hot-spot neighbourhoods 
If you are 60 and older (born in 1961 or earlier) or an adult recipient of chronic home care, and you live in an identified high-risk community, you can call 613-691-5505 to book an appointment at a pop-up clinic location close to your neighbourhood.

Other groups were made eligible in previous weeks and remain eligible today. Please visit Ottawapublichealth.ca/COVID19vaccine to see if you belong to one of those groups or use Ottawa Public Health’s COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Screening Tool to check your eligibility.  

Pop-up clinics are not available through the provincial booking system, so eligible residents in these high-priority neighbourhoods should still call
613-691-5505 to make an appointment.
