Flu Shots – Influenza vaccines have arrived.   You can schedule your appointment by booking online.

Vaccination against influenza will be important this fall given the potential for the co-circulation of COVID-19. Preventing the flu will be important not only to protect individual health and the health of families and communities, but also to protect and mitigate impacts on our health care system.

COVID-19 Vaccine – Our clinic continues to offer Covid-19 vaccination.   Looking for your 1st, 2nd or qualify for a 3rd dose?   Please call our office to book your appointment!  705-224-6752

– Write prescriptions and monitor chronic conditions
– Provide treatments and/or procedures
