Anyone hoping to go to an Ottawa 67's game this fall will want to book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment first.

The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) says, effective October 7, 2021, it will be expanding its current vaccination policy to cover all spectators and other attendees at all OHL events, including games and practices.

The date coincides with the start of the 2021-22 regular season.

"Those wishing to gain access to OHL facilities of the 17 Ontario based teams will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 and follow any other safety protocols while in the facility," reads a statement from the OHL, released on Friday, August 20. 

The league says children under the age of 12 will be required to be accompanied and supervised by a fully-vaccinated adult, and will be required to follow all safety protocols.
