AstraZeneca Vaccine


The Astra Zeneca vaccine is being offered only to people ages 60-64 (if you are 60-64 as of the day of vaccination, or if you will be or have been 60-64 in 2021). It is available in pharmacies and some family doctors’ offices in certain health regions.

Aurora, Mount Albert and Newmarket Clinics:

Our Newmarket, Aurora and Mount Albert Clinics have not received the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in our clinics.  We will let you know as soon as possible when the vaccine becomes available to us. Please do not call us to try to book an appointment. We need to keep our phone lines free for patients with immediate medical needs.

Bradford Clinic:

Our Bradford clinic has received a small volume of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in our clinic.  As we do not have a sufficient number of vaccines to vaccinate everyone who is eligible, please do not call us to try to book an appointment as we will contact you. We need to keep our phone lines free for patients with immediate medical needs.

Adults under 55:

For the time being, the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will not be used to vaccinate adults under 55 years of age while the rare risk of vaccine-induced blood clots following vaccination with AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine is investigated further.   
 
This change does not indicate that vaccine causes blood clots, rather, it is part of the safety surveillance process Health Canada has implemented to ensure this risk is fully investigated.
