Anyone eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine can now walk in as booster uptake slows – CBC

Ottawa Public Health says vaccine appointments available as city opens up walk-in eligibility

Jan 14, 2022

Ottawa Public Health now says anyone eligible for a first, second or third dose of a COVID-19 vaccine can just drop in as the city tries to increase vaccine uptake during this Omicron-fueled wave.

In the first few days of Ontario opening up third-dose eligibility, public health officials had some growing pains as it rapidly expanded capacity for tens of thousands of new appointments.

Last week, Ottawa administered an average of 12,100 boosters per day and that dipped to an just above 9,000 for the first two days of this week.

Wednesday was the first day of walk-in appointments in Ottawa and public health reports it administered 943 doses to those who didn’t have an appointment.
