Flu Shots Winter 2018-2019

Flu Shot

We recommend you get your flu shot to get maximum protection for the upcoming flu season, for you and your entire family.

On average in Canada, the chance of developing Influenza in any given year is one in six. Although many consider influenza to be a minor illness, in fact in high risk individuals (those over 65 years of age, diabetics, patients with asthma, chronic lung disease, immune system suppression or cancer), it may be a life threatening problem. Flu vaccine is offered to all residents of Ontario.

Flu season is now upon us!

For those who still wish to have the flu shot, you can do so at your next appointment with your doctor, or you can call to book an appointment with our nurses if you are not planning to see the doctor soon. Pharmacies are also carrying the regular flu shot.

We have now received High Dose Flu Shot for Seniors, effective November 16. Please call to book an appointment with the nurse to have this if you are interested.

If you receive your flu shot elsewhere, please let us know so we can update our records (calling us or sending us a message through Health Myself Portal would be great!).

We also do have the Flumist Nasal Spray for those aged 2-59 years old.

 

**Please be aware that Parking is limited. **

If you have non-flu shot related questions or need to see your doctor, please schedule a regular appointment. Unfortunately, we are only allotted vaccine in amounts to serve the patients we see. Family members not registered with us should receive their shots from their own Family Physician, or from a Public Health clinic location in the area. Flu shots are offered free from the Ministry of Health in many different locations.
