The by-appointment clinics were previously open only to families with young children, and people with physical limitations, medical conditions or special needs. The EOHU is also holding community drop-in flu immunization clinics, which don’t require an appointment.
“Originally, our by-appointment clinics were open only to those residents most at need,” states Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, Medical Officer of Health.
“However, we have a limited number of appointments that are still available so we’re now opening them up to the general public.” Appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The EOHU reminds residents to bring a piece of identification to the immunization clinics. For clinic dates and locations, visit www.eohu.ca. To book an appointment, call Health Line at 613-933-1375 or at 1 800 267-7120.
