Workplaces, community organizations, places of worship and other groups can now request a mobile vaccination team to administer first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on-site, at their own location.
This program is intended to help reduce barriers for residents who have not yet received the vaccine by working with community leaders to provide comfortable, convenient and easily accessible options for vaccination. This is just one more initiative to help ensure that anyone 12 years of age and older in Ottawa who wants the COVID-19 vaccine can get vaccinated.
If you are a community organization, community leader, faith leader, or employer in Ottawa and have a group of people that may benefit from a mobile vaccination team coming to you, please reach out through the following ways:
- Complete the mobile vaccine clinic request form(link is external) online.
- Call 613-691-5505 for assistance in completing the form.
Based on your group’s needs, Ottawa Public Health will coordinate the planning and can set up a mobile team, assist in promotion of your mobile vaccine clinic, and even help answer questions about the COVID-19 vaccines. Services can be provided in a variety of languages.
Other ways to get vaccinated
There are many appointments available for anyone who still needs a vaccine. Visit the provincial booking system(link is external) or use this this tool(link is external) to find a convenient time and date, or drop-in at certain clinics without making an appointment. The drop-in locations are updated daily on OttawaPublicHealth.ca(link is external) and on the City’s Facebook(link is external), Twitter(link is external) and Instagram(link is external) accounts. You can also book an appointment with your local pharmacy(link is external).
If you are booked for a vaccination in the fall, you are encouraged to move your appointment up to take advantage of the many appointments that are available.
