Just a quick update to let everyone know that all versions of the flu vaccines are now back in stock at our Riverside and Beach locations! Book your appointments here!
However our Eglinton clinic still does not have any of the high dose flu vaccine (preferred vaccine for those who are 65+) or the nasal spray (one of the options for kids 2-17 years of age).
For those who are 65 + and would like to be seen at our Eglinton Clinic.
As noted in our previous blog post, this year the preferred flu vaccine for those who are 65 years or older is the “high dose” flu vaccine. This vaccine is preferred as it is expected to provide better protection than the standard flu vaccine for this age group. This vaccine is NOT available at pharmacies. See here for more info.
We receive all our vaccines from a government pharmacy and we were only provided with a limited supply of the high dose flu vaccine. We have temporarily ran out of the high dose flu vaccine at our Eglinton location. We expect to receive more of this vaccine very soon, but the exact timing of the delivery is out of our control.
Our suggestion is that when possible, our patients who are 65 year or older get the high dose flu vaccine so that they are best protected from the flu. This can be done by:
Booking an appointment at our Eglinton location for after November 8, 2018.
If the above options are not possible, we suggest you get the standard flu vaccine either through our clinic or at one of the many pharmacies offering the standard flu vaccines without an appointment.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact the clinic should you have any questions or concerns.
