All pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Ottawa are now open to any resident aged 12 and up to get a first or second shot, the city announced Thursday.
The expanded eligibility comes a day after Ottawa ramped down a number of community clinics on Wednesday, standing up only five vaccination sites across the city through to the end of July.
Anthony Di Monte, the head of Ottawa’s vaccine task force, said Wednesday that the city is switching to a “more focused approach” to its COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
The city said Thursday that it will continue to offer pop-up clinics in neighbourhoods experiencing lower rates of vaccination. Some pop-up clinics will specifically target youth aged 12 to 17 and their families.
Ottawa has released the following list of currently scheduled pop-up clinics:
- Monday, July 26 and Tuesday, July 27 from 12:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Canada Science and Technology Museum, 1867 St. Laurent Blvd.
