COVID-19 vaccination clinics resume after school in Ottawa, a community clinic closes this weekend

Ottawa Public Health is reopening post-school COVID-19 vaccination clinics, while a busy community clinic at the EY Center will close for good later this week.

The health unit says it has “transfer capacity” to COVID-19 vaccine clinics as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.

“The purpose of this change is to support immunization of individuals and families by bringing clinics closer to where people live, work and play,” the health unit said.

As of Wednesday, 91 percent of Ottawa residents aged 5 and older had received a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, while 84 percent had received two doses.

After School Vaccination Clinics

Starting Friday, Ottawa Public Health is reopening post-school COVID-19 vaccination clinics, with 49 clinics planned over the next several weeks.

“Initially, neighborhoods are facing greater barriers to vaccination or those with lower vaccination rates,” the health unit said.

The clinics are drop-in only and will give priority to children between the ages of five and 11 and their families. Those living in nearby communities who still need a first, second or booster dose are also welcome to attend the schools.
