FEB 2021 - UPDATE ON FLU SHOTS

As of February 2021, Bridgepoint Family Health Team has a limited supply of flu shots available, including very few high-dose senior shots.  If you are over 65 and have not had a flu shot yet, please call our clinic to ask if you should book an appointment.  If you are coming to the clinic in-person for other reasons, please ask us for a flu shot when you check-in for your appointment and we can usually provide one (if we have doses available at the time).

If your local pharmacy is offering the Flu Shot, please know that you are welcome to have it done there. We kindly ask that if you get your Flu Shot at a pharmacy, to please call the clinic so we can update your records.

For information about the Flu/Seasonal Influenza, please check out the Toronto Public Health Fact Sheet.

Thank you for your interest in getting the Flu Shot! Getting the Flu Shot can help protect you, your family, and your community from Influenza.
