New information

  • Age limit lowered to 18 for individuals in “hot spot” communities
  • As of Thursday, May 6, age limit will be lowered to 50 for individuals on the province’s online registration system

Lower age limit for community clinics

Beginning Thursday, May 6 at 8 am, all Ottawa residents age 50 and over (born in or before 1971) can begin booking appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at community clinics.

In addition, priority populations who have been only able to book via the provincial call centre will now also be able to book online, including individuals with the highest risk health conditions, child care workers in licenced child care settings and education workers who provide direct support to students with special education needs.

Visit 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.

Lower age limit for “hot spot” communities

The Province has lowered the age limit for individuals living in one of the three provincially defined “hot spots” that have postal codes beginning with K1T, K1V or K2V. Residents 18 and over (born in or before 2003) living in one of these areas, can also visit to book an appointment at one of the City’s community clinics starting tomorrow.

When you book your appointments through the provincial booking system, you will receive a confirmation code. Please bring this code with you when you go to your appointments. If you do not have a confirmation code, your appointments were not successfully completed. Please revisit the provincial booking system or call 1-833-943-3900 to book your appointments and receive your confirmation code.

To enable physical distancing and to reduce the number of people in the clinic, please arrive for your vaccine no more than 10 minutes before your appointment time.

Walk-ins will not be accepted at any location

  • This includes walk-ins at the end of the day
  • Book your appointment in advance
  • Remaining doses at the end of the day will be administered to residents on the wait list.
