Music festival attendees enjoying a concert in the pre-COVID era.

You can now enjoy indoor dining at your favourite restaurants or pub, hit the gym, catch the latest blockbuster and more. The best way to continue to enjoy these well missed activities and avoid another wave of outbreaks is to be fully protected against the virus. Getting both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine has never been this easy.

Did you know that according to Public Health Ontario, 95.7 per cent of the people who tested positive for COVID-19 from June 10 to July 10 were unvaccinated?


Want to continue going out and doing things? Drop into any City of Ottawa clinic and get vaccinated. Here are the links:
