NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS

COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION

Last Updated: July 21, 2021

Effective, July 21, 2021, walk-ins for first and second COVID-19 vaccinations are available at several clinics across York Region. Due to an increase in vaccine supply, York Region COVID-19 vaccination clinics are now offering both Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines. Appointments are still available for those who prefer to book in advance. Individuals with previously booked second appointments later this summer are encouraged to book an earlier appointment or take advantage of the ability to walk-in at one of the clinics. Walk-in hours vary at each clinic. Please visit York Region Public Health's website for more information regarding the clinics: click here

On June 17th, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) advised that an mRNA vaccine (Moderna/Pfizer) is now recommended for people who got a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine. Based on this advice, the SAFHT recommends that our patients who got a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine follow this direction and book their second shot for an mRNA vaccine (Moderna/Pfizer). The SAFHT will not be giving the AstraZeneca vaccine at our clinics. While this is our recommendation, the decision as to what type of vaccine (whether AstraZeneca or mRNA) you receive continues to be yours to make. For patients who have an appointment booked in July and August for second doses at our clinic, please note these appointments have been cancelled.

If you want to book an appointment for the AstraZeneca vaccine for your second dose, you will need to book your appointment through a community pharmacy, click here. If you want to book an appointment for the mRNA vaccine (Moderna/Pfizer) for your second dose, you will need to book your appointment at a mass vaccination clinic or at a community pharmacy:

If you have already received two doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, we would like to assure you that this vaccine provides good protection against COVID-19 and very good protection against severe disease and hospitalization because of to COVID-19. A third vaccination with a mRNA vaccine is not recommended at this time.

The provincial booking system for COVID-19 vaccine is now available. You may now check your eligibility or book an appointment online or you can call 1-888-999-6488 Monday to Sunday from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

APPOINTMENTS

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the raise in positive COVID-19 cases and the second wave, Ministry of Health (MOH) has asked us to maximize virtual visits as much as possible. This is to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and healthcare workers as recommended by the MOH and Public Health. Our clinic is offering virtual and phone care first and, if needed, patient will be brought in for an in-person visit. If the issue is urgent you will be offered urgent virtual/phone appointment in urgent care and guided on next steps after the assessment.
 

URGENT CARE 

Effective 6/10/20, the Newmarket Urgent Care Clinic (evenings 5-8 PM and Saturday 9AM -12 PM) will transition to virtual appointments only.  Patients will not be seen in-person during these clinics.
