OTTAWA -- Ottawa Public Health says more than 16,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in Ottawa last week, a slight increase over the week prior.
OPH data show 16,600 doses were administered in Ottawa the week of Sept. 19, including 5,938 first doses and 10,662 second doses.
This is higher than the 15,540 doses administered the week of Sept. 12 and the 15,924 administered the week of Sept. 5.
As of Monday, 83 per cent of residents 12 and older are fully vaccinated. That accounts for 72 per cent of Ottawa's total population.
Half of the new first doses administered last week were to people 20 to 39. That age group has been lagging behind other age groups in vaccinations.

*OPH now assigns people to age categories based on year of birth, rather than date of birth. An 11-year-old born in 2009 is now included in the age 12-17 calculations, while a 17-year-old born in 2003 is included in the 18-29 category, etc.
**A 2020 population estimates suggest there are 42,388 people in Ottawa 80 and older. The current number of vaccinated people in that age category is slightly higher than that figure.
