You must therefore have received your first dose of a Health Canada-approved vaccine before your move-in date and provide proof of vaccination before moving in. Please read carefully the addendum to the residence agreement.
Provide proof of vaccination
Log in to the Housing Portal to submit your proof of vaccination.
Book an appointment
To get vaccinated, make an appointment online (if you live in Ontario) or check the information from public health authorities in your province or territory of residence.
Second dose (if necessary)
Once you’ve received your first dose, whether before or after you move in to residence, you must receive your second dose within the timeframe recommended by Ottawa Public Health and before October 1.
Vaccines not approved by Health Canada
If you have not already received all required doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada, but approved by the World Health Organization, you must receive at least one dose of an approved vaccine within two weeks of moving in and provide proof of vaccination.
If you’ve already received all required doses of a World Health Organization approved vaccine, you do not need to receive another vaccine. Please provide a proof of vaccination.
If you can’t receive a vaccine for health-related reasons or other grounds protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code, submit a request for accommodation through the Housing Portal.
Refusal to get vaccinated or submit proof of vaccination
As indicated in the addendum to the residence agreement, if you don’t get vaccinated or submit acceptable proof of vaccination by the required deadline, your residence agreement will be terminated (unless you’ve received an exemption).
Starting September 13, if you are not fully immunized (14 days after your second dose), or if you have received an accommodation, you are required to undergo a rapid COVID test every week.
You MUST do the rapid test weekly until you are fully immunized (14 days after your second dose of the vaccine).
If your request for an accommodation has been approved, you must continue to be tested weekly for as long as you live in residence to fulfill the conditions of your accommodation.
More information about the rapid testing will be communicated shortly.
If you test positive, complete the Residence COVID Line - Intake Form. You will be REQUIRED to follow self-isolation protocols.
If you do not submit your proof of vaccination by October 1, your residence agreement will be terminated and you will be forced to move out of residence.
You must also fill out the uOttawa daily assessment questionnaire.
