Thank you for choosing our team of experienced professionals for the care of your health and wellness. We are a Family Health Organization (FHO). The FHO model represents the alignment of Primary Care Networks and Health Service Organizations into one model. FHOs are groups of physicians who provide comprehensive primary health care services to their patients with a focus on illness prevention. FHOs provide care during regular and extended office hours and patients have access to a nurse staffed Telephone Health Advisory Service.
** Immunization Reminder ** - It is the responsibility of parents to report ALL vaccines, including those given by their health care provider directly to Ottawa Public Health. Parents are also required to also report ALL childhood immunizations to school boards at kindergarten registration. Further details on can be found at: http://www.parentinginottawa.com/en/Immunization.asp
INFLUENZA VACCINE - Influenza or the “flu” is a serious and contagious respiratory illness. It is caused by a virus that can spread quickly from person to person, either by a simple cough or sneeze, or, when someone touches a surface that has been contaminated with the flu virus. We encourage our patients to get their flu shots every year. The flu vaccine is covered by OHIP and is offered at no charge to Ontario patients.
We are NOW offering flu shots during our DAYTIME shot hours as noted below. NO flu shots will be given during the evening and/or over the weekend. Priority will be given to patients who are being seen for an appointment first and foremost. As a result, there could be a wait to have your flu shot, contingent on how busy the clinic is at that point.
Mornings – 10:00am – 11:15am (Monday to Friday) Afternoons – 1:30pm – 4:15pm (Monday to Thursday)
