IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT UPCOMING SHARBOT LAKE FAMILY HEALTH TEAM COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINICS

SCHEDULING OF 2nd DOSES:

All patients who received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at one of the Sharbot Lake Family Health Team vaccination clinics have been given an appointment for their 2nd dose.
KFLA Public Health is now urging people to receive their 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.  Accordingly, we have moved 2nd dose vaccine clinics up and have started these clinics as of Monday, June 28th.  We are in the process of confirming 2nd dose appointments for all patients who received a COVID-19 vaccine from the SLFHT.  This process will take several weeks so do not worry if you haven’t yet received a call from us to confirm your 2nd vaccine dose appointment.

ALREADY RECEIVED OR HAVE BOOKED YOUR 2ND DOSE ELSEWHERE?

Please let us know if:

  • You have already received your 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere.
  • You are booked to receive your 2nd dose of COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere.

The gathering of all personal health information is governed by the Personal Health Information Act 2004, 39. (1) (a.

If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment at one of the upcoming Sharbot Lake Family Health Team clinics, please call the clinic at 613-279-2100 so that we can cancel the appointment and offer it to someone else. 

MIXING VACCINES:

Canada’s National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) supports and confirms that ‘mixing mRNA vaccines’ or vaccine interchangeability is safe and effective.

If you are a patient of the SLFHT who has received Astra Zeneca vaccine as your first dose and would like to receive the Moderna vaccine for your 2nd dose, please contact the clinic at 613-279-2100.  You will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if we have extra doses available.

CHANGING LOCATION TO RECEIVE 2ND DOSE:
If you are a patient of the SLFHT who has received a first dose (Pfizer, Astra Zeneca or Moderna) at a clinic other than the SLFHT and would like to receive your 2nd dose close to home at an SLFHT clinic, please contact the clinic at 613-279-2100.  You will be placed on a waitlist and contacted if we have extra doses available.
