Drop-in appointments now available for residents needing first dose

The City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health are making it easier for residents who have yet to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Anyone who has not yet had a first dose can now drop in to any City-run community clinic(link is external) between 10 am and 7 pm or pop-up clinic while supplies last(link is external). No appointment needed. Residents can also drop in at the Queensway Carleton Hospital between 9 am and 3 pm daily. You can find a clinic near you by using the vaccine clinic location tool on OttawaPublicHealth.ca/COVID19vaccine(link is external).

Residents who have already received their first dose are also reminded to re-book their second dose appointments to an earlier date. All residents who are 12 years old and up can book their second dose as early as 28 days after their first dose.

Those who prefer a scheduled appointment can book a first or second dose appointment by visiting Ontario.ca/bookvaccine(link is external) to access the provincial booking system or call the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900 between 8 am and 8 pm, seven days a week. You may also be eligible for vaccination at a local pharmacy(link is external), now or at the Bruyère vaccine clinic(link is external).

You can also register daily on the vaccine wait-list tool(link is external) to book last-minute, same-day COVID-19 vaccinations at City of Ottawa community clinics for unclaimed doses. These appointments can open up at any time during the day and registered residents will be contacted by Ottawa Public Health by text, email or phone as they become available.
