COVID 19 Vaccination

Our office is NOT administering COVID-19 vaccines at this time.  

For information related to vaccination for kids aged 5-11 yo please visit Ottawa Public Health for more information related to vaccine roll out in the community. 


For information on eligibility and obtaining your 3rd dose please visit Ottawa Public Health.  


The National Advisory Committee now recommends that COVID-19 vaccines can be administered at the same time as, or at any time before or after, non-COVID-19 vaccines, including live, non-live, adjuvanted or unadjuvanted vaccines. This updated recommendation will facilitate the rollout of flu vaccinations and the administration of routine vaccinations that may have been missed during the pandemic. Vaccines given during the same visit should be given at different injection sites and same-day administration is preferred to vaccines given within a few days of each other.

COVID 19 VACCINATION EXEMPTIONS

We encourage all eligible patients to receive two doses of the COVID19 vaccine. Regardless of your vaccination status patients are able to access any medical services they require.


If you are inquiring about vaccination exemptions, as of Sept. 22nd residents of Ontario will need to show proof of immunization to access public spaces such as gyms, movie theatres and indoor dining at restaurants. Additionally, many workplaces are enacting their own specific vaccination policies that may permit medical exemptions.

Generally speaking, there are very few acceptable medical exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccination and exemptions to the mRNA covid vaccines almost exclusively fall into two categories at this time:


• an allergist/immunologist-confirmed severe allergy or anaphylactic reaction to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or to any of its components that cannot be mitigated;


• a diagnosed episode of myocarditis/pericarditis after receipt of an mRNA vaccine.
