Older Adults Vaccine Booster Promotion - lots of appointments and drop-in spaces available
Ottawa Public Health (OPH) has increased capacity to better serve everyone eligible for a first, second and third (booster) dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, particularly adults 60 years and older in the community who may have yet to receive their third (booster) dose. All OPH community clinics offer drop-ins.
There is ample appointment and drop-in capacity at all community clinics: · François Dupuis Recreation Centre (2263 Portobello Boulevard)
· Nepean Sportsplex Curling Rink (1701 Woodroffe Avenue)
· University of Ottawa - Minto Sports Complex (801 King Edward Avenue)
· JH Putman School (2051 Bel-Air Drive)
· Eva James Memorial Centre (65 Stonehaven Drive)
· Orleans Ruddy Family YMCA-YWCA (265 Centrum Boulevard)
Clinic availability for drop-ins will be posted regularly on OPH's social media platforms (Facebook and Twitter).
Third (booster) doses of the COVID-19 vaccine continue to remain a key protective measure. Adults over 60 remain at greater risk for serious illness and complications from COVID-19. For many, their immunity is likely to have decreased and getting a third (booster) dose ensures they are as protected as possible against serious illness and complications from COVID-19. Adults aged 60 and older who have received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and at least 84 days (three months) have passed since their last dose are strongly encouraged to drop-in to one of our community clinics or to contact OPH's booking line today at 613-691-5505 to book an appointment, if preferred.
For any disability-related accommodations, OPH also has an accessibility assessment form that can be filled out 48 hours before a COVID-19 vaccination appointment.
