What's Happening at the Clinic

  •  PLEASE TAKE TIME
    TO COMPLETE OUR SURVEYS
    Have you been to the clinic in the past six months? If so, we'd appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete a short survey to tell us about your experience. You can access the survey by clicking here. Your responses are anonymous, but they are invaluable in helping our team's ongoing efforts to improve the quality health care you receive.

    In addition, with COVID-19 safety protocols requiring our providers to schedule phone appointments, we want to hear from you about your experience. We'd appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete our Telephone Appointment Patient Survey here.

     
    COVID-19 VACCINES
    As of November 26, Ontarians age 5+ are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine (note that Pfizer is currently the only approved vaccine for youth ages 12-17 and Pediatric Pfizer is the only approved vaccine for 5-11 year olds).
    For Second Doses, the recommended interval for optimal protection is as follows:
    PFIZER - 8 weeks after first dose
    MODERNA - 8 weeks after first dose
    PEDIATRIC PFIZER - 8 weeks after first dose

     
    THIRD DOSES
    Ontario is now recommending third doses of COVID-19 vaccine to optimize protection from infection for those who are most vulnerable. Third doses can be either mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna). The recommended interval is 168 days from your second dose - use this handy calculator here to determine when you're eligible.
     
    The following groups are currently eligible for a booster:
    • Residents of Long-Term Care, Retirement Homes, Elder Care Lodges and elderly living in other congregate settings.
    • Adults 70+ years of age (born in 1951 or before)
    • Indigenous adults (18+) and their non-Indigenous adult (18+) household members
    • Those who have received 2 doses of AstraZeneca (one dose of Johnson & Johnson)
    • Health care workers who frequently have close contact in the patient environment plus others with close patient contact.
    • Designated essential caregivers for residents of Long-Term Care or Retirement Homes. (Can likely access the third dose directly from the facility.)
    People with moderate to severe immunosuppression are also recommended to have 3 doses of vaccine for optimal immune response. These individuals can access their third dose a minimum of 28 days, but preferably 2 months after their second dose.

    CHANGE TO OFFICE PROCEDURES
    As the health care system continues to recover from the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have returned to patient choice for in-person or telephone appointments.

    However, please understand that while the office is open, we continue to follow strict guidelines as required by public health to keep our staff and patients safe. This means everyone entering the clinic must wear a face mask, complete a COVID self screening form upon entering the clinic take it to reception and then maintain appropriate physical distancing in our waiting room.

    To assist us in this transition phase, we ask patients to
     please not walk into the office without an appointment. CALL FIRST if you have questions, concerns about your health or wish to book an appointment.

     
    For scheduled in-office appointments, please arrive on time. Come alone (one helper if needed) and do not bring children to your appointment if at all possible.​

    If you are experiencing mild symptoms (fever, cough) please do not come to your appointment. Call our office so we can reschedule when you feel better.
