Did you know that you don’t even need a doctor’s prescription to receive a vaccine?

Vaccination is one of the best ways to protect yourself against illness. However, the vaccine needs of adults, teens and children can vary widely. Regardless of age, it’s important to keep your vaccine schedule up-to-date.


If you are in the Gatineau area and you need a vaccine or you’d like more information, contact one of our clinic nurses for advice.

 

Note that we keep all vaccines in the clinic and a doctor’s prescription is not required.

Our clinic does not charge file set-up fees!
