We strongly encourage all our patients to book a flu shot appointment through their pharmacy.
We are not able to hold a "Flu Clinic" nor book appointments for only a flu shot due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will have limited flu vaccine available for those patients we book an in person visit for due to their other medical conditions.
If Due to ongoing developments with COVID-19 we regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to close our walk in. This will help us keep staff and physicians healthy. If you require the services of a walk in clinic I have provided their contact information below. Please call prior to arriving at the walk in.
