2) VACCINATION CLINICS FOR ALL OTTAWA RESIDENTS 75 OR OLDER (BORN IN 1946 OR EARLIER) REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEY LIVE IN THE CITY
All Ottawa residents 75 years of age or older (born in 1946 or earlier) regardless of where they live in the city, are able to book an online appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine through the Province of Ontario’s online booking system at ontario.ca/bookvaccine.
When booking an appointment, individuals will be asked for information from their green Ontario health card, birth date, postal code and email address and/or phone number. Expired cards will be accepted.
Individuals who still have a red and white health card, or who require assistance with booking an appointment can call the Provincial Vaccine Information Line number at 1-888-999-6488 beginning on Monday, March 15. The provincial vaccine information line is open Monday to Sunday, 8AM to 8PM.

- Ruddy Family YMCA-YWCA – 265 Centrum Blvd, Ottawa
- Eva James Memorial Community Centre – 65 Stonehaven Drive, Ottawa
- Ottawa City Hall – 110 Laurier Avenue West
To enable physical distancing and to reduce the number of people in the clinic, please arrive for your vaccine no more than 10 minutes before your appointment time.
