The City of Ottawa will be following the Province of Ontario’s plan to distribute the vaccine in three phases.
The province is responsible for distributing vaccine doses across Ontario and determining the sequence of who gets the vaccine.
Ottawa Public Health reminds us that vaccination will not eliminate the need for continued precaution. Until more is known about COVID-19 transmission, continuation of all recommended precautions is strongly encouraged.

The province continues to strongly recommend limiting close contacts to members of your household, staying at home except for essential travel, wearing masks in indoor public spaces and maintaining physcial distance of at least 2 metres from people you don't live with.
The novel coronavirus spreads primarily through droplets when an infected person speaks, coughs, sneezes, or breathes onto someone or something. These droplets can hang in the air.
People without symptoms can be contagious even after receiving a vaccine, and new variants of the coronavirus can be more contagious. Continued precautions are recommended now and in the months ahead.
