City is reaching out to individuals who received first doses at rural clinics who still need second dose appointments


If you received your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at a rural clinic and have not yet booked your second dose, you will receive a phone call this week from the City of Ottawa and Ottawa Public Health to book an appointment for your second dose at another rural pop-up clinic taking place between June 20 and 25.

Individuals who received first doses at a rural clinic but have already made arrangements for a second dose on their own will not be contacted.

Rural clinics will take place at the following locations:

  • R.J. Kennedy Memorial Arena
  • West Carleton High School
  • South Carleton High School
  • Metcalfe Arena

Please note:

  • Appointments are required at these clinics; no walk ups will be accepted.
  • At this time rural pop-up appointments are only being provided to those being contacted directly.
  • You cannot book an appointment for a rural pop-up clinic through the provincial booking system, nor can you call the City or OPH directly to book at a rural clinic.
  • Sign up for the City’s COVID-19 vaccine newsletter to receive timely updates about these clinics and the City’s vaccine rollout.

Residents can visit to access the provincial booking system or call the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900 between 8 am and 8 pm, seven days a week to book an appointment at any of the community clinics in Ottawa.

You may also be able to book your vaccine appointment at a local pharmacy. Eligible residents should check with the pharmacy directly. Select primary care teams are also offering vaccines.
