**UPDATE DEC 15, 2020: NEW SUPPLY OF FluMist Nasal Spray Available. See details below.**

We now have a supply of FluMist which is a flu vaccine in the form of a nasal spray suitable for patients 2-59 years of age. If you wish to receive one, please call the nurse (905-845-4511 ext 218) to book an appointment.

 

We have completed the flu clinics for this year.

If you or your child receives a flu injection elsewhere please call our office and press 1 to leave a message to cancel your existing appointment to avoid charges.

We have been advised by Halton Public Health that they have fully distributed its allotment of high-dose flu vaccinations for the 2020-2021 season.

 

Dear Patients:

We have been advised by Halton Public Health that they have fully distributed it’s allotment of high-dose flu vaccinations for the 2020-2021 season. Unfortunately, the supply is insufficient to meet our demand.

Please note that Public Health supplies our clinic, the pharmacy is supplied by a separate supply chain. High-dose flu shots may be available at local pharmacies but we cannot guarantee this.

It is important for seniors to get a flu shot! Any of the remaining influenza vaccines are preferable to remaining unvaccinated.

Early uptake of the flu shot and continued COVID-19 Public Health measures including masks, hand hygiene and physical distancing will help to keep cases of flu low this year.

Sincerely,

Lakeshore Medical Group
