Ottawa Public Health to host monkeypox vaccine clinics – CBC

The AIDS Committee of Ottawa will hold an information session Thursday

Jun 21, 2022

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is planning vaccine clinics for monkeypox and has begun offering shots to residents who are “highest risk.”

Dr. Vera Etches, Ottawa’s medical officer of health, said the province provided roughly 100 doses over the weekend, which was enough to meet the immediate demand.

However, during Monday’s board of health meeting Etches said she expects interest in getting the vaccine could rise as more people learn it’s available. That’s where the clinics, which have also been held in Toronto and Montreal, would come in.

“In addition to access through our sexual health centre, we’re also planning additional clinics with partners who can best connect with communities at higher risk,” Etches said.

Public health reported the first positive case of monkeypox in Ottawa on June 10.

That person has since recovered and OPH followed up with close contacts about post-exposure vaccination, Etches said. The risk to the general public remains “very low,” she added.
