Starting Monday July 5 at 8 am, residents who are 12 years old and older will be eligible to receive an accelerated second dose of COVID-19 vaccine 28 days after receiving their first. If you already have an appointment booked for an interval of longer than 28 days, you are encouraged to rebook for an earlier date.

To book a first or second dose appointment, 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. You may also be able eligible for vaccination at a local pharmacy, at a pop-up clinic, or at the Bruyère vaccine clinic.

You can also register daily on the new vaccine wait-list tool to book last-minute, same-day COVID-19 vaccinations at community clinics for unclaimed doses. These appointments can open up at any time during the day and registered residents will be contacted by Ottawa Public Health by text, email or phone as they become available.

If you have a second dose appointment scheduled in the provincial booking system and you end up booking another appointment elsewhere, please remember to cancel your original appointment. This will free up the old appointment for someone else.
