Please be advised that medical exemptions to the COVID vaccine are extremely rare.

As per guidance released by the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario: 

The largest group of individuals who receive a medical exception will be those with severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or to any of its components and who have been assessed by an allergist/ immunologist to review methods for possible (re)administration of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Another group of individuals who may receive a medical exemption are those who are delaying their second dose because of a diagnosed episode of myocarditis/pericarditis after receipt of an initial dose of an mRNA vaccine.




**NEW*** The CHEO Assessment Centre at Brewer Park Arena now offers Do-It-Yourself Test Kits for kids age 2 months and up.  More information can be found here.

In order to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, and keep our patients and staff safe, we have implemented the following measures:

We ask that you come alone.  If you must be accompanied by someone (such is the case for children or adult dependants), we ask that only one person accompany you. 

Masks are mandatory and must be worn while you are in the office.  We will not let you into the clinic without a mask.
