COVID-19 Vaccine Information

We acknowledge that there are many questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and more specifically, how and when you will have the opportunity to receive it.  At present, the vaccine is not available in community based clinics like ours.  In Durham and around the Province and Country, vaccination efforts are focused on those who are most at risk.  This includes Long-term Care and Retirement Home residents and workers, front line healthcare workers and those in vulnerable congregate settings.

Medical Associates of Port Perry and the North Durham Health Team will be actively involved in the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine.  We will provide our patients and community with information about how and when you can get the vaccine as that information becomes available.  We encourage you to refer back to this website for updates as well as those of Durham Public Health and the Province of Ontario.

We are committed to serving the healthcare needs of our community and we will continue to dedicate and prioritize our resources in response to COVID-19. 

Thank you for your continued commitment to Public Health guidelines as we all work to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community.  Your healthcare workers, both front-line and support, appreciate your efforts.
