Pop-up clinics are now open to all Ottawa residents age 12 and up for 1st and 2nd doses

Pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics will be open to anyone age 12 and up for a first or second dose.

Expanding eligibility will help increase access to COVID-19 vaccines for anyone in Ottawa. Pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics will continue to be planned to reduce barriers in neighbourhoods experiencing lower rates of vaccination.

More pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics for priority neighbourhoods and youth 12-17 for first and second doses have now been scheduled. Pop-up clinics will continue while needed.

Upcoming pop-up clinics:

Upcoming youth pop-up clinics (ages 12 to 17 from any neighbourhood and adults who come with them):

  • July 26, 27, 28 and 29 – 8 am to 8 pm
    • University of Ottawa Minto Sports Complex - 801 King Edward Avenue

Second doses
A second dose can be received at least 28 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer), and at least eight weeks after receiving an AstraZeneca vaccine.

Residents may receive a different second dose mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccine than their first dose at community clinics. Interchanging vaccines is safe and effective. The priority is to receive two doses of a vaccine to complete the series and be fully protected.

Same-day appointments can only be made in-person no earlier than two hours before the clinic opens, on a first come first served basis, while supply lasts. If there is a waiting period, residents may receive an appointment card with a time to return to the clinic for their vaccine.

Thanks to the Ottawa Health Team, Kids Come First Health Team and other local partners in the community for their support.
