This past week, the province added the 50 to 59 age group to the eligibility list if they live in one of 3 area codes K1T, K1V, and K2V. None of these area codes are in Bay Ward. In response, Ottawa Public Health extended its eligibility criteria to include residents aged 50 to 59 from all its priority neighbourhoods.
Phone Line Issue
There were issues with the options on the OPH line (613-691-5505). An option for the new eligibility was not included. This issue has been corrected.
HINT: If the agent is asking about your postal code, you may be speaking to the provincial call centre. The local OPH call centre should also be asking for your address, not just your postal code.

For more information, please visit OttawaPublicHealth.ca/IndigenousVaccine
The province offers a tool where you can enter some information to find out how you can schedule your vaccine appointments.
You can also do this for someone else, if you manage their medical care and appointments.
The following people need to consult their healthcare provider to discuss vaccination risks and benefits before their appointment and will be required to verbally attest that they have done so:
- Pregnant individuals
- Those receiving stem cell therapy, CAR-T therapy, chemotherapy, immune checkpoint inhibitors, monoclonal antibodies, and other targeted agents
It is also recommended that you do not receive another vaccine in the 14 days prior to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The provincial vaccination roll-out page, provides more details on phase two vaccine sequencing based on age and risk.
Walk-ins will not be accepted, so please book your appointment in advance.
This includes walk-ins at the end of the day. Any remaining doses at the end of the day will be administered to eligible health care workers who have indicated they are available for a last-minute appointment.
Next steps in vaccine roll-out
Residents of all ages who are not yet eligible for the vaccine are encouraged to follow announcements on the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health websites and social media channels, and from your local news media to learn when they can receive their vaccine. They can also sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination update e-subscription for regular news on the vaccine roll-out.
Please refer to Ontario’s vaccine distribution plan for details on other priority groups.
