Getting a flu shot is especially important this year because of the overlap of symptoms and risk of COVID-19. Please note that we have received our first shipment of flu vaccines (this is being written on October 9/20). Patients 65 yo and older should get the high dose trivalent vaccine. Patients 6 months and under 65 should get the quadrivalent vaccine.
WE ARE OFFERING FLU SHOTS IN OUR OFFICE BUT THE PROCESS HAS CHANGED. Patients need to book appointments. Pharmacists are also able to administer flu shots as are Toronto Public Health clinics (appointments needed). A list of public health clinics is attached on the next page.
If you get a flu shot elsewhere please notify your family doctor so this information can be added to your record.
Please contact us if you have any questions
