As a reminder, this year Ottawa residents have different options for obtaining their flu shot:
OPH-run public influenza clinics in fixed locations. To avoid crowding and to control the flow of clients in and out of these locations, the clinics will be by appointment.
Pharmacies will provide flu vaccine to Ottawa residents 5 years and older, including the high-dose vaccine that is publicly funded for seniors. A map of all participating pharmacies is available on the OPH website.
Doctor’s offices and Nurse Practitioners in the community will continue to provide flu vaccine to their clients.
OPH is working hard to ensure vaccination clinics throughout the city and is identifying locations for potential mobile vaccination clinics.
PETITION Please consider signing the petition I’ve created asking that the COVID-19 Command Table appear before before the Select Committee on Emergency Management Oversight. You can find it here:
Be Social WISE
Continue to follow Ottawa Public Health guidelines, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, wash hands frequently, socially distance 2 meters apart and stay home if you are not feeling well.
OPH recommends limiting gatherings as much as possible. In other words, limit gatherings to those who live in your household or those providing support services, such as a caregiver. If you live alone (single parent, student, etc.), one or two contacts outside your home can be important social supports to draw on.
