Update and Resources from Ottawa Public Health

This morning the Ontario government announced that it is expanding eligibility for fourth doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to individuals aged 60 and over as well as First Nation, Inuit and Métis individuals and their non-Indigenous household members aged 18 and over starting on April 7, 2022.

Starting on Thursday, April 7 at 8:00 am, eligible individuals will be able to book their fourth dose appointment through the COVID-19 vaccination portal or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900, directly through Ottawa Public Health’s booking line at 613-691-5505, or through Indigenous-led vaccination clinics, participating pharmacies, and participating primary care settings.

OPH continues to updates our COVID-19 vaccine webpage and encourage you to promote all these resources with your residents.

Additionally, please see the updates below for the latest resources from Ottawa Public Health (OPH).


Weekly Snapshot of the COVID-19 situation in Ottawa

COVID-19 levels in our community remain very high. OPH highly recommends that people continue to wear masks and that we all be mindful of how many close contacts we have. It is also more important than ever for residents to get vaccinated with all the doses for which they are eligible.

Every week, OPH will share a snapshot of the COVID-19 situation in Ottawa via its social channels. If you are not already doing so, please also follow on OPH’s Facebook and Twitter channels, and share those posts with your followers. They contain important information to help all of us get through this latest resurgence.


New Youth Mental Health E-Learning Hub

In partnership with OPH, CHEO’s YouthNet has officially launched the new Youth Mental Health E-Learning Hub. This creative bilingual website was designed by Ottawa youth for youth (ages 13 to 24) and to participate in a self-guided learning journey about mental health, explore community resources available to them, and connect with each other. Teachers and educators can also benefit from this e-learning hub for their lesson plans and to facilitate important conversations with their students about mental health.
