Dear Patients, 

With Ontario facing the most devastating wave of COVID-19 yet, and more contagious variant strains circulating, it is so important that you protect yourself and that includes through vaccination. We are encouraging you to get vaccinated as soon as you can. If you still have questions after reading this information, please call our office. 

Take the first vaccine offered to you – Waiting for your ‘preferred’ vaccine risks potentially getting COVID-19 and associated illness. To best protect yourself and others, We agree that the best COVID19 vaccine is the one that reaches your arm first. Only COVID-19 vaccines that Health Canada determines to be safe and effective are approved for use, and all are highly effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19, including AstraZeneca. This is the same advice we as family doctors give to our own family members and loved ones. 

Below you find some credible resources for some of the FAQs that we encounter from our patients.

Please book your vaccination appointment as soon as you are eligible. 

We are here to help keep you safe and get through this pandemic together.
