Ottawa – The issues with the provincial booking system were resolved and bookings for the COVID-19 vaccine resumed on Thursday, June 3rd at noon.
Residents age 80 and over
Residents age 80 and above who do not have a second dose appointment booked will be contacted directly by Ottawa Public Health starting June 3 and continuing throughout the month of June. This will guarantee access to appointments within the standard second dose interval of 16 weeks.
Residents can also 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. However, there are limited appointments available at this time in June.
More than 100 pharmacies across Ottawa are also receiving vaccines directly from the Province. Participating locations are available on Ontario.ca. Most pharmacies book appointments ahead of time and some allow walk-ins. Eligible residents should check with the pharmacy directly. Select primary care teams are also offering vaccines.
We will provide further updates about second doses and new appointments when they are available.
