COVID-19

COVID UPDATE:

We will contact you  by email 1 day before your first appointment to confirm your appointment time & location. Some appointments are being done by telephone. PLEASE answer phone calls with ‘no caller ID’ as this may be one of our physicians calling you for your visit or with important information.

Unless you have a booked appointment, DO NOT come to clinic without calling ahead. All new/prospective patients must call to make an appointment.

Flu shots are recommended for women in pregnancy. Flu shots can be arranged through your family doctor, the pharmacy, or Vancouver Coastal Health.

The COVID vaccines are not yet studied in pregnant women but may still be given.  Read The Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC) recommendations here. This COVID vaccine decision making tool can also help you in making this decision.
