Ottawa continues to lead the way in vaccinations for children aged five to 11 in Ontario.

As of Monday, Ottawa Public Health says 35 per cent of children five to 11 in the city have had their first dose. That amount of coverage is number one in the province by public health unit, slightly ahead of Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health, according to provincial statistics.

In addition to community clinics, booked through the provincial portal, Ottawa Public Health is holding rotating pop-up clinics after school hours at 73 different schools until Dec. 23. Vaccines can also be obtained at many local pharmacies.

Clinics on school days will be held in the afternoon, but there are also clinics that begin in the morning on weekends at some schools.

OPH says after-hours school vaccinations clinics are open to anyone born in 2016 or earlier who lives in a neighbourhood near the school. They do not need to be students at that school.

Drop-in appointments are available on a first come first served basis during clinic hours. If the clinic is very busy, appointment cards may be given with a return time. A parent or guardian's consent is required for children aged five to 11.
