Booking an accelerated vaccination appointment for youth

Special to WC Online

OTTAWA – Residents may experience issues with the online provincial booking system when booking an accelerated COVID-19 second dose for youth who are 12 years old and older.

A series of questions will be asked during the registration process. When asked if you are registering for a youth clinic, please select ‘No.’ There are currently no youth-only clinics in Ottawa at this time and selecting ‘Yes’ will prompt the system to say there are no available appointments. 

To book a first or second dose appointment for yourself or a child in your care, visit to access the provincial booking system or call the provincial vaccine booking line at 1-833-943-3900 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., seven days a week. You may also be eligible for vaccination at a local pharmacy, at a pop-up clinic, or at the Bruyère vaccine clinic.

You can also register daily on the vaccine wait-list tool to book last-minute, same-day COVID-19 vaccinations at City of Ottawa community clinics for unclaimed doses. These appointments can open up at any time during the day and registered residents will be contacted by Ottawa Public Health by text, email or phone as they become available.
