Welcome to Clairhurst Pediatrics

Clairhurst Pediatrics is one of the largest pediatric offices in the GTA. We strive to provide the highest quality medical care for our patients and their families.

******* FLU SHOTS HAVE ARRIVED*******

Check the “walk in” tab for the nurses flu shot clinic availability

WE ARE NOW BOOKING PHYSICALS INTO FEBRUARY

We REQUIRE 48 hours business days notice of cancellation by phone or web message (use contact us tab).  If you receive an invoice in the mail it is because we didn’t receive notice of your cancellation. 

*******IMPORTANT VACCINE INFORMATION*******

NOTE: 6/ 7 & 14 year olds are receiving letters from Public Health reminding them they are missing vaccines or due to get TDaP vaccine, some of them suggest suspension from school.

Please make sure you update Public Health Immunizations on line if the vaccine has already been administered.

Most 6/7 year olds are up to date with their vaccines, the information Public Health has is what the families provided when they signed up for school/kindergarten.  Often, the 4 year vaccines are administered after school sign-up and parents must notify school when the receive vaccines right through to graduation from high school.  Public Health receives all their information from the schools please make sure you notify your child’s school or go online to Toronto Public Health and update your child’s vaccination records.

All 14 year vaccines will be administered at the first annual check-up appointment after the 14th birthday.  The paediatricians are booking 3-4 months in advance, so contact us to book ahead before you receive a note from Public Health as we cannot accommodate walk ins and have no slots available for last minute check ups. Remember to update the school or go online to Toronto Public Helath Immunizations and update your child’s records.

Failure to keep Public Health updated may result in suspension from school.

GRADE 7 VACCINES

Students going into to Grade 7 will be sent home form school with a form from Toronto Public Health asking if the student has already received Meningococcal C-ACYW, Hepatitis B and the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Vaccines as the Public Health Nurse will be visiting their school to administer these vaccines.  Please check your child’s bag, if they do not tell you about the form and it doesn’t get returned to school and they miss the vaccines in school you will get a letter advising of school suspension. Check you child’s yellow immunization record, occasionally someone may have received one of these vaccines for travel, but most will not have received them at our office. If your child has not received these vaccines, please make sure they return the form saying “yes” to receive them in school.

Toronto Public Health does not ship these vaccines to your paediatrician.  Clairhurst Pediatrics does not order these vaccines individually from Toronto Public Health as the order process is extremely cumbersome and time consuming for our staff.  If you miss the vaccine in school please check Toronto Public Health website for their clinic locations and times.

We receive many calls asking us to administer the vaccines here due to anxiety, preference, medical conditions.  We recommend you fill out the form to get it done at school.  If the Public Health Nurse at school is not comfortable giving the vaccine due to an extreme medical condition, please contact us.

We are trying to work with Public Health to get the vaccines delivered in bulk directly to our office, as they do with the other childhood vaccines, we will post here if that option becomes available in the future.

NON-OHIP COVERED VACCINES

Vaccines for travel, volunteer work such as Twinrix (Hep A & B) and TB Tests are not covered by OHIP.  The cost of the vaccine and the Dr’s fee to administer the vaccine will apply.
