First COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinics in Ottawa to be held March 5
The city’s first pop-up vaccination clinics for adults 80 and older and adult recipients of chronic home care will be held in certain neighbourhoods starting next week.
The news was announced at city council on Wednesday.
The first clinics will be located in the high-risk neighbourhoods of Ledbury, Heron Gate, Ridgemont, Emerald Woods, Sawmill Creek, and Riverview.
More details on how to book an appointment will be made available this coming Monday, March 1.
These areas are being targeted first because of a limited supply of vaccine doses and because they are experiencing higher rates of COVID-19 transmission, Emergency and Protective Services General Manager Anthony Di Monte said.
