The Province of Ontario has expanded pre-registration for the COVID-19 vaccine to include non-frontline moderate priority health care workers, such as those working remotely or those not requiring personal protective equipment at work. Pre-registration remains open for highest priority, very-high priority and high-priority health care workers and eligible faith leaders.
Non-frontline health care workers can visit Ottawa Public Health to book their appointments. To help protect those in our community who are most at risk, we ask health care workers who are able to work remotely to consider waiting until they are eligible based on age, postal code or other factors, so that those in the most impacted communities in Ottawa can be vaccinated sooner. Those who must work on-site or whose role is to provide critical COVID-19 health care are encouraged to pre-register.
Next steps in vaccine roll-out
Residents of all ages who are not yet eligible for the vaccine are encouraged to follow announcements on the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health websites and social media channels, and from local news media to learn when they can receive their vaccine. They can also sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination update e-subscription for regular news on the vaccine roll-out.
Please refer to Ontario’s vaccine distribution plan for details on other priority groups within Phase 2.
