Beginning March 15, all Ottawa residents age 80 and over can begin booking appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. There are two options for booking, depending on where you live, so please consider the options carefully to determine which one is right for you.
Residents over 80 citywide
All Ottawa residents 80 and older (born in 1941 or earlier) regardless of where they live in the city can book an appointment through the Province of Ontario’s online booking system. This includes adults 90 and older who do not yet have an appointment booked.
Visit Ottawapublichealth.ca(link is external) to access the provincial booking system or call the information line at 1-888-999-6488 between 8 am and 8 pm, seven days a week. Only book or call if you are eligible.

- Nepean Sportsplex (open)
- Ruddy Family YMCA-YWCA (opens Wednesday, March 17)
- Eva James Memorial Community Centre (opens Tuesday, March 23)
- City Hall (opens Tuesday, March 23)
