As of Sunday, May 23 youth aged 12 and over in Ottawa can book appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at community clinics. To book an appointment online, these individuals must already be 12 years old as of the date of their booking.
The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by Health Canada for use in individuals aged 12 and over.
Visit Ontario.ca/bookvaccine 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. Only book or call if you are eligible.
As an alternative to community clinics, the Province also announced that youth 12 and above may schedule appointments directly through select pharmacies administering the Pfizer vaccine.

Pop-up Clinics in high risk communities
Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is implementing new approaches for pop-up clinics in high-risk communities. In the weeks to come, adults who live in these areas will be eligible for a vaccine. They will be notified of clinic and registration options through a targeted approach.
An example of a targeted approach is Ottawa Public Health teams going door to door to distribute appointments cards. These appointments can’t be booked by phone.
