Ottawa neighbourhood vaccine hubs now open to all residents over 12

By Mike Vlasveld

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is opening neighbourhood vaccine hubs across the city to offer a convenient and accessible way for all residents over the age of 12 to get their COVID-19 vaccines.  

Four hubs are in operation and OPH says more are scheduled to launch this week. Additional locations will be opened over the coming weeks.
The health unit established its neighbourhood hubs in areas of the city based on discussions with community partners and the availability of space. OPH's immunization teams at the local hubs are available to answer questions, provide vaccine information, and vaccinations.  
Ottawa Public Health's website has all hub locations and hours of operation, and the health unit says the site is updated regularly.  
This program is another initiative intended to help reduce barriers for residents who have not yet received the vaccine. 
Any resident 12 years or older who needs a first or second COVID-19 vaccine dose can drop-in to any public health neighbourhood vaccination hub. No appointment is needed to receive a vaccine or to speak with a public health nurse about COVID-19 vaccines. 
There are many appointments available at community clinics for anyone who still needs a vaccine. Visit the provincial booking system or drop-in at any clinic without making an appointment. You can also book an appointment with your local pharmacy.
