All residents who are 18 years and older and have received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose will be eligible to book an accelerated second dose appointment on Monday, June 28 at 8 AM. In anticipation of increased demand, additional appointments will be added to the provincial booking system Monday morning.
Please note that if your first dose was an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer), your second dose appointment must be at least 28 days after. Those who have received AstraZeneca as a first dose can book their second dose appointment at least eight weeks after their first.
Residents are reminded that they may receive a different second dose of mRNA (Moderna or Pfizer) vaccine than their first dose at community clinics. Interchanging vaccines is safe and effective. The priority is to receive two doses of a vaccine to complete the series and be fully protected as soon as possible.
To book a first or second dose appointment, visit Ontario.ca/bookvaccine(link is external) 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.

Eligible residents can also register daily on the new vaccine wait-list tool(link is external) to book last-minute, same-day COVID-19 vaccinations at community clinics for unclaimed doses. These appointments can open up at any time during the day and registered residents will be contacted by Ottawa Public Health by text, email or phone as they become available.
If you have a second dose appointment scheduled in the provincial booking system and you end up booking another appointment elsewhere, please remember to cancel your original appointment(link is external). This will free up the old appointment for someone else.
