About our services


Vaccination

Learn about vaccines offered at all hubs: COVID-19, flu, school-based vaccines and routine childhood vaccines.

We offer a variety of vaccines and the opportunity to speak with a public health nurse:

COVID-19 and flu vaccine.

  • COVID-19 vaccines are available for anyone six months of age and older. Please visit COVID-19 Vaccination for more details on eligibility and the COVID-19 spring booster dose.
  • Flu vaccines will be offered for select groups:
    • Children aged six months to 5 years of age and their household members.
    • Individuals without Ontario Health Insurance (OHIP) who are unable to access a flu vaccine through a primary care provider or pharmacy.
  • All COVID-19 and seasonal influenza vaccines may be given at the same time as, or at any time, before or after administration of other routine vaccines.
  • Note: The updated XBB-containing mRNA COVID-19 vaccines are available at all Neighbourhood Hubs that provide vaccines. The bivalent mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is only available at the Greenboro Library Hub. 

Routine and school-based vaccines for children and youth 

  • School-based vaccines: All of our hubs are offering vaccines that are normally given in grade 7 and 8, referred to as “school-based vaccines.” These vaccines include Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), Hepatitis B and Meningococcal conjugate vaccines.   
  • Routine vaccines: All of our hubs are offering routine vaccines that are required for attending schools and daycares, including the school-based vaccines listed above. They will be available to children and youth aged two months to 17 years of age who do not have a primary care provider (such as a family doctor or nurse practitioner). This includes children and youth in the neighbourhood without an Ontario Health Card (OHIP). For the list of publicly funded vaccines visit the Government of Ontario website. 
  • All of our hubs also offer routine vaccines for clients aged 18 and over who are newcomers without an Ontario Health Card (OHIP). Those individuals can also have their records assessed at a Hub. For more information on vaccination for those 18+, visit our Adult Immunization webpage
  • All routine and school-based vaccines are available on a drop-in basis. If wait times are long, families will be offered appointments for a later time or date.  
  • Please bring any previous vaccination records to the clinic, and a piece of identification for the person(s) receiving the vaccine(s) or their Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) card if available. An OHIP card is not required if you do not have one. 
  • Visit the Parenting in Ottawa website for more details on vaccines for children and youth.

Employment and Social Services

We provide access to social assistance programs including financial assistance, housing, employment services, and referrals.

Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) Kits (while provincial supply allows)

With the lower rates of COVID-19, high vaccination rates, and demand for rapid antigen test (RAT) kits consistently decreasing, the province will be winding down its RAT programs, which includes no longer distributing kits to retail locations like pharmacies and grocery stores, starting June 30, 2023.

After June 30, 2023, those at highest risk of severe outcomes from COVID-19 including high-priority communities will continue to have access to free rapid tests through existing channels (e.g.,long-term care). RATs will also be available through other health system partners, for the upcoming respiratory season, and while provincial supplies last.

To support ongoing access to COVID-19 testing through the summer and the fall, in particular for people who may be eligible for COVID-19 treatment, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) will make rapid antigen test (RAT) kits available to Ottawa residents, free of charge, starting on July 4, 2023. Residents can access RAT kits through existing OPH services, like neighbourhood hubs and community vaccine clinics – local health partners and community agencies will be able to order provincial RAT kits, while provincial supplies last.
