WCSS to host vaccination clinic June 22

By Jake Davies - West Carleton Online

WEST CARLETON – A date is set for West Carleton’s next Ottawa Public Health (OPH) pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

“I am very pleased to advise that I have been able to secure a second rural pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Tuesday, June 22,” Coun. Eli El-Chantiry released in a statement today (June 15).

The vaccination clinic will take place at the West Carleton High School, 3088 Dunrobin Rd.

“The priority for this pop-up clinic is to reach those older adults (75-and-older) and recipients of chronic home care that received their first dose at a rural pop-up in early April and do not currently have a planned second dose appointment at a local pharmacy, primary care team or community clinic.”

OPH and the City of Ottawa also released a statement today (June 15) reaching out to residents that attended one of the city’s first rural pop-up vaccination clinics.

“If you received your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at a rural clinic and have not yet booked your second dose, you will receive a phone call this week from the City of Ottawa and OPH to book an appointment for your second dose at another rural pop-up clinic taking place between June 20 and 25,” city staff released in a statement. “Individuals who received first doses at a rural clinic but have already made arrangements for a second dose on their own will not be contacted.”

Appointments are required for the June 22 vaccination clinic and no walk ups will be accepted.

“At this time rural pop-up appointments are only being provided to those being contacted directly,” staff said. “You cannot book an appointment for a rural pop-up clinic through the provincial booking system, nor can you call the city or OPH directly to book at a rural clinic.”
