For those who do not already have in-office appointments; flu shots are available at various locations while supplies last.
This self-assessment tool, developed with the BC Ministry of Health, will help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. You can complete this assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.
TAKE THE SELF-ASSESMENT TOOL:
The most important thing you can do to prevent infection is to wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
To help reduce your risk of infection:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Using soap and water is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection.
If a sink is not available, alcohol based hand rubs (ABHR) can be used to clean your hands as long as they are not visibly soiled. If they are visibly soiled, use a wipe and then ABHR to effectively clean them.
Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow when you sneeze or cough.
Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Do not share food, drinks, utensils, etc.

COVID-19 vaccines: are they safe?
January 5, 2021
COVID-19 vaccines are arriving in BC representing a significant turning point in the battle against the disease. While supplies are limited, the focus is to deliver the vaccine to the most high-risk groups to start, increasing the number of eligible individuals as supplies themselves increase. While many are excited about the vaccine, others may be hesitant – with so much information about the vaccines out there, it can be hard to separate fact from fiction. So it’s important to know – what’s the truth behind the COVID-19 vaccines?
As the COVID-19 outbreak unfolds, nations around the world are enforcing measures to ease the spread of the virus. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO), officially declared the outbreak a pandemic. Health workers and governments are working tirelessly to control the situation, but each of us also has an important part to play.
Family Doctors are as frazzled & frustrated as their
patients through the Covid-19 pandemic.
October 7, 2020 | Pamela Fayerman
Family medicine is in a state of crisis, exacerbated by the pandemic which, eight months in, has totally disrupted primary care physicians’ ability to provide face-to-face, quality care.
Things are so bad that while governments are urging everyone to get a flu shot to avoid a “twindemic” many doctors and their patients are confused about where to get vaccinated, just days away from the time when people typically start getting them....
