Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is the right thing to do.  It is protecting you and others from severe illness.

It is important that you receive all recommended doses of the vaccine.  Longer-term protection against COVID-19 is not achieved until after all recommended doses of vaccine are received.

We are currently offering COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) through our Central Nursing offices located in suite 108 at the clinic.  Appointments can be booked using the booking link above.  Walk-in appointments may also be available.

If you have questions about whether the COVID-19 vaccine is right for you, talk to your health care provider or family doctor.

COVID-19 Vaccine: Dispelling the myths and getting the facts.

Although COVID-19 vaccines were created in record time, it is not because there were shortcuts in the process. The research behind the vaccines is rigorous. Tens of thousands of people were included in the clinical trials. That's more than 6 times the usual number of people included in a typical vaccine trial.All 4 COVID-19 vaccines currently approved for use in Canada have published the ingredients lists for the vaccines.Fact: The vaccines are safe.Fact: We don't know how long natural immunity will last if you already have been infected with COVID-19. You should still consider getting vaccinated.

We recently held a Virtual Community Town Hall meeting to discuss the COVID-19 vaccine.  The information presented can be accessed here.
