More than 50,000 Ottawans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19

Ottawa Public Health says more than 50,000 residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as administration of second doses continues to increase.

The latest data from OPH's COVID-19 vaccination dashboard show 50,601 Ottawa residents 12 and older have had both doses of COVID-19 vaccine, 11,047 more than last Monday.

Administration of first doses also continues, with more than 44,000 first shots administered in the last week. Nearly 540,000 residents—62 per cent of all adults—have had at least one dose so far. The city has also surpassed the 50 per cent mark for first dose coverage among the total population with 51 per cent of residents having at least one dose.

On Monday, the province opened up earlier bookings for second doses for people 80 or older, but the city said there were some issues with the provincial booking system, which forced a temporary pause on vaccine bookings.

Vaccine administration in Ottawa slowed last week compared to the record-setting week before, with 55,918 total doses administered between May 23 and May 29. The week prior had seen more than 67,000 shots in arms.

This week, the city is holding pop-up vaccination clinics in select neighbourhoods.

Individuals 12 years of age and older who live in the eligible neighbourhoods will be able to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the pop-up clinics.
