After-School Covid Vaccination Clinic Schedule

The schedule is now available for after-school COVID-19 vaccination clinics. From Thursday, December 2 to Thursday, December 23, 73 schools across the city will host vaccination clinics on a rotating schedule. Up to 10,000 appointments for children ages five to 11 will be available each week through these clinics.

After-school clinics are open to anyone born in 2016 or earlier who lives in a neighbourhood near the school and does not need to be students at that school. Parent or guardian consent is required for children ages five to 11.

Drop-in appointments are available on a first come first served basis during clinic hours. If the clinic is very busy, appointment cards may be given with a return time. Ottawa Public Health is working with Ottawa school boards to promote after-school clinics to parents and guardians, and students at the school, and to students at other nearby schools.

Ottawa Public Health is working with community partners to do door-to-door outreach in some neighbourhoods to give eligible residents appointment cards. Appointments through the provincial booking portal are not available for after-school clinics. For after-school clinic locations and hours please visit: OttawaPublicHealth.ca/AfterSchoolClinics.

As we head into the winter holiday season, Ottawa Public Health encourages all eligible children to get the COVID-19 vaccine to help protect themselves and their family from serious illness, lower the risk of transmission, reduce disruptions to in-person learning and other activities and strengthen the entire community’s immunity.

Ottawa Public Health is working to make vaccination for younger residents and their families as easy and comfortable as possible, with new child-friendly signage and fun stickers to take home. Read Ottawa Public Health’s tips on how to prepare for your child’s appointment, including giving children a snack beforehand and bringing a comforting toy or music to listen to.
