Clinics are for all children aged 6 months to 17 years old and their families. An Ontario health card is not required. Clinics are a walk-in basis; no appointment is necessary. Call 625-5900 or 1-888-294-6630 for more information.

 

Kids need the flu shot too!! Here are 5 reasons why:

  1.  The flu can make kids really sick with complications like bronchitis or pneumonia.
  2.  The flu shot gives developing immune systems a boost by teaching the body to fight the flu.
  3.  No missed work or school; sick kids have to stay home.
  4.  Protecting your child also protects others at higher risk, especially babies and grandparents.
  5.  The flu shot is closely monitored in Canada and has an excellent safety record.
