Flu Vaccine

We encourage our patient to get their flu shots every year. The public health agency of Canada produces a new vaccine each year that provides protection against the most common strains predicted for the coming season.

Flu vaccines are covered by OHIP and are free to Ontario patients.

Flu vaccines will be offered at Meadowlands Family Health Center starting late October. We run flu clinics every year. Please check our website every fall for exact dates.

A flu consent form will be provided to you prior to the administration of the vaccine by our medical staff. If you wish you may visit the City of Ottawa link to print off your own consent form, complete it and  bring it with you to your flu shot visit.

 

Tuberculin Skin Testing (TB)

It is a skin test that can determine whether you have been exposed to tuberculosis.

No appointment is required. You can come and see the nurse anytime Monday to Friday between 8:00AM-6:00PM. You will need to come back 48 to 72 hours after injection for the results.

Cost: $60.00.

 

Allergy Injections

If a patient believes he/she is developing an allergy, he/she will need to book an appointment with his/her family doctor. They will probably refer you to an allergist who will test you for certain allergies. If you have been diagnosed with a specific allergy, the allergist will order the allergy serum on your behalf. It will be sent here to the clinic where you will need to come for regular injections. At that time, there will be no need to see a doctor, you will be able to come and request to see a nurse.

 

For all live vaccines, we will ask all our patients to wait an extra 15 minutes in the waiting room to ensure no allergic reaction is occurring.
