We are encouraging our patients to receive both the flu AND Covid booster shots this year. These vaccines are recommended for children older than 6 months of age, and they can be given at the same time.
We will not be doing Covid booster shots in the office, but we have received our flu vaccines. Since most pharmacies are now able to offer flu (regular and high-dose) and covid shots for all ages, we are asking those of you who are able to receive your flu and Covid shots through them. As each pharmacy is different, please contact your pharmacy directly to confirm what ages they can accommodate and to see if an appointment is required.
This year at our flu clinics we will be prioritizing patients under 6 years old. If one of your family members is less than 6, we will try to accommodate all family members during the same time slot.
Please arrange your flu shot appointment by calling the office at 905-528-5292. Phone lines are open daily from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM (and closed between 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM).
For children aged 8 and under who are receiving the flu vaccine for the first time, please be advised that a booster dose will be required 4 weeks later. This booster dose will be administered during a flu shot clinic on December 6, 2023 from 1:00- 5:00 PM. Patients attending the flu shot clinic should wear a short-sleeved/ sleeveless shirt and have a snack prior.
We have also been getting questions regarding the RSV vaccine. This vaccine requires a prescription and is not covered. The cost is approximately $250.

Our vision: To promote and provide excellent, innovative healthcare to our patient community through a dedicated, compassionate team.
If you need a prescription renewal, please contact your pharmacy and have them fax our office. You do not need to call our office to ask for one. Please book your medication review with your doctor or our clinical pharmacist once per year.
