Here's which Ottawa schools are hosting COVID-19 vaccine clinics for kids this week

Efforts to vaccinate children aged five to 11 are ramping up this week in Ottawa.

Appointments for vaccines opened on the provincial portal last week, and more than 8,400 children between the ages of five and 11 were vaccinated this past weekend.

In addition to community clinics, booked through the provincial portal, Ottawa Public Health is holding rotating pop-up clinics after school hours at 73 different schools between Dec. 2 and Dec. 23.

Clinics on school days will be held in the afternoon, but there are also clinics that begin in the morning on weekends at some schools.

OPH says after-hours school vaccinations clinics are open to anyone born in 2016 or earlier who lives in a neighbourhood near the school. They do not need to be students at that school.

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. A parent or guardian's consent is required for children ages five to 11.
