Flu Shot Clinic
Pivotal Kids Clinic is happy to announce our Annual Influenza Vaccine clinic. Similar to last year, we are going to run the clinic differently in order to keep everyone safe during the COVID pandemic.
We will have the clinic open on the following dates,and will require families to sign-up for a time prior to arriving, which can be done on our online booking system. If you have more than one child, please book the appointment under one child, and then call the clinic to let us know which of your other children will be coming at the same time. When it is your turn, please remember that we are only allowing one parent per child/children to enter the clinic, and ask that everyone over 4 years of age to wear a mask. As per York Region Public Health guidelines, we will only be administering the flu vaccine to children. We ask that parents contact their primary care physician to arrange for their own flu shot.
When you enter the clinic, you will check-in first and your child/children will then receive their vaccine. We will not be able to assess your child prior to the vaccination, so if you are concerned your child may be unwell, please defer the vaccine for another day.
Only vaccine injections will be available this year, as the intranasal vaccine option is not being offered by Public Health.
Thursday November 3rd, 2022 from 4:30-7:30 pm
Wednesday November 9th, 2022 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Wednesday November 16th, 2022 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm
Thursday November 17th, 2022 from 4:30-7:30 pm
If your child has an in-clinic appointment and you would like them to receive the influenza vaccine at that time, that option is available to you.
To book an appointment, or for any other questions, please contact the clinic.

COVID-19 Vaccination for Children Aged 5-11 Years
With the recent announcement of Health Canada approving the COVID vaccine for children aged 5-11 years, our office has received many calls from parents who wish to discuss this vaccine with Dr. Witt or Dr. Cellupica. While we appreciate people wishing to speak to their physicians directly, we are finding it difficult to schedule these appointments with the return to more in person visits, check-ups, and urgent calls about illness.
Both Dr. Witt and Dr. Cellupica support the Health Canada recommendation that children aged 5-11 years receive the COVID-19 vaccination. This decision is based on expert opinion, and is especially important as children in this age group have become the fastest growing population of people who are getting infected with COVID. While most children will experience a mild case, there are concerns that children can develop MIS-C which is a severe multisystem inflammatory condition, as well as the risk of developing more severe COVID or suffering long standing symptoms after infection. As well, it is important to have as many people vaccinated in our community so that we can limit the spread of this deadly virus and hopefully prevent any further lockdowns and the negative effect they have on children’s mental health and development.
If you wish more information specific to the COVID vaccine in children, or if you wish to have a consultation regarding the vaccine, please visit https://www.sickkids.ca/vaccineconsult where you can speak to someone by telephone appointment. Additional resources can be found at york.ca/COVID19VaccineInfo.
