More Ottawa residents can book COVID – 19 vaccination appointments this week, including anyone in the city over the age of 70 regardless of where they’re living.

Ottawa will continue its strategy of inoculating residents aged 50 and older in neighborhoods facing the highest rates of coronavirus transmission by opening up vaccine appointments on Monday to anyone living in the following communities:

Starting Wednesday, Ottawa will also book vaccine appointments for anyone in the city aged 70 and older.

These vaccinations will take place at the Nepean Sportsplex.

Also starting Wednesday, Ottawa Public Health will begin registering all patient-facing health-care workers such as doctors, dentists, midwives and physiotherapists for appointments. While not all front-line health workers are eligible for the vaccine yet, per the province’s guidance, those who register with OPH will receive an email when it comes to their turn in the sequencing.

Ottawa is also partnering with the Akausivik Inuit Family Health Team and the Wabano Center for Aboriginal Health to vaccinate First Nation, Inuit and Métis community members who are aged 19 and older. Information on booking these appointments is available on OPH’s website.

The city is asking residents to avoid calling for a vaccine appointment before they meet eligibility requirements so as to avoid clogging up phone lines.
