COVID-19: Vaccines

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Background

Ottawa Public Health has a new COVID-19 Vaccine page at OttawaPublicHealth.ca/COVID19Vaccine which has information on the situation in Ottawa, how the vaccines work and considerations for residents. The City of Ottawa's COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Task Force continues work on a plan for vaccine distribution in Ottawa: https://ottawa.ca/en/covid-19-vaccine-distribution-faqs.

It will take many months before large amounts of the population are vaccinated. It is important that Ottawans continue to do what works to reduce the spread of the virus: maintain a two-metre distance from others outside their own household, wear a mask, stay home when sick and wash their hands. In Ottawa, a large amount of spread is happening in private social gatherings such as parties and large family get-togethers. Limiting close contacts is very important in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

All COVID-19 engagement surveys are currently closed. Please check back regularly as we will update this page to seek ongoing feedback as we continue to navigate next steps.
