Update – Emergency Operations Centre

Ontario remains in Step Two of the provincial Roadmap to Reopen. Step Two of the Roadmap focuses on the resumption of more outdoor activities, small indoor gatherings, and personal care services. For information on the impacts of the current measures on City services and facilities, visit Ottawa.ca.  

We continue to have numerous appointments available at our community clinics between today and July 30th for all individuals age 12 and over needing their first dose or accelerated second dose. Additional appointments will be added if needed. 

Residents who have not already booked their first dose or accelerated their second dose are strongly encouraged to do so. The sooner we can fully vaccinate our population, the sooner we can get back to some level of normalcy. 

Vaccines also continue to be available through local pharmacies, primary care teams, the Bruyère vaccine clinic, and other targeted delivery channels, such as ongoing pop-up clinics in priority neighbourhoods. These combined efforts have resulted in the administration of nearly 1.2 million doses. To date, 81 per cent of Ottawa residents 18 and over have received at least one dose and 50 per cent have received two doses.

The attached Key Information Guide provides an overview of the various vaccine distribution channels and how residents can book an appointment. Please refer to this guide when responding to resident inquiries. OPH’s COVID-19 Vaccination Dashboard also contains up-to-date information on COVID-19 vaccinations in Ottawa. For any new questions, please contact the Councilor Liaison line at councillorliaisonduconseil@ottawa.ca, which monitors trends in questions to inform future iterations of these resources.

As vaccination plans are evolving, we continue to encourage residents to sign up for the City’s COVID-19 vaccination update e-subscription and follow announcements on the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health websites and social media channels.

The EOC will continue to provide you with regular updates on the progress of vaccination efforts.
