Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is expanding its effort to vaccine children aged five to 11.

In addition to community clinics, booked through the provincial portal, after-school pop-up clinics are being run by OPH, starting Thursday, December 2.

Seventy-three schools across Ottawa will host clinics on a rotating schedule, until December 23. The clinics will operate in the afternoon, and will rotate from school to school.

Children who attend the school hosting the clinic, or live in the neighbourhood are eligible to receive a vaccine at the pop-ups.

The clinics opening on Thursday include the Dr. F.J. McDonald Catholic School, and the École élémentaire catholique Marius-Barbeau. A full schedule of the after-school clinic is available on OPH's website. 

Drop-in appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parental consent is required for children aged five to 11 to receive a vaccine, while a shot will not be administered if a child's parent or guardian is not present.
