More than 3,000 walk-in vaccine appointments available Monday in Ottawa
The City of Ottawa says there are more than 3,000 vaccine doses available for first and second shots at community clinics in Ottawa Monday that do not require any appointments.
The city is allowing a limited number of walk-ins while supplies last in an effort to make vaccinations as easy as possible. The city is encouraging anyone with a second dose appointment scheduled for later this summer or into the fall to move their second dose up as early as possible.
Here are the locations and number of appointments available as of 10 a.m.:
- Canadian Tire Centre: 94
- Canterbury Recreation Complex: 27
- Eva James Community Centre: 471
- Nepean Sportsplex – Halls A+B: 235
- Nepean Sportsplex – Rink: 336
- Orleans YMCA: 309
- Ottawa City Hall: 369
- University of Ottawa Minto Sports Complex: 1,483
Community clinics are open for first and second dose drop-ins between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Residents are able to receive a second dose at least 28 days after receiving an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer), and at least eight weeks after receiving AstraZeneca vaccine.
