You may hear about Hamilton receiving some doses of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) vaccine in the coming weeks, but these doses will be provided to our most vulnerable populations first, such as staff and residents in long-term care.

We do not know when the COVID-19 vaccine will be available for us to provide to our patients here at McMaster Family Practice.

We expect it will be in late spring 2021 and will update our website and social media accounts as more information becomes available.

Some helpful information regarding the vaccine is found at the following websites:

The McMaster Family Health Team is Offering Appointments via Video!

Did you know that the McMaster Family Health Team is now offering appointments via video to all patients using a secure, easy-to-use platform?

A video visit allows you to talk online to your healthcare provider using video chat โ€“ all from the safety, comfort and convenience of your own home using your computer or smartphone.

Many of the appointments booked with your healthcare provider can be scheduled as a video visit. You can request a video visit when you call the clinic to book your appointment.
Here is what some patients have said about their video visits:

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป โ€œI feel this platform is long overdue. It is very convenient and saves time, transportation and parking fees. Also provides better time management- no wasted time in the waiting room!โ€

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป โ€œI found it useful and would love this as an alternative especially in poor weather. โ€œ

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป โ€œI am completely satisfied with this process. I hope it continues even when COVID-19 is no longer an issue. I like it.โ€

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป โ€œOne of the positive outcomes of this covid is additional accessibility with virtual appts, which previously weren't available when I was bedridden & inquired last Dec. I'm hoping you'll continue to keep it as an appt option in the future. Thank you so much!โ€

๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป โ€œThe link was very easy to hook up to. Very pleasant experience.โ€

We are writing to give you an update about our activities and planning at the clinic in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

If you have any symptoms of new onset fever or cough or shortness of breath, please call the clinic and we can provide more information over the telephone, we will ask about your travel history and possible exposure to COVID-19 and work with you regarding the best plan for where to go if further assessment and testing is necessary.

Any patients/visitors coming to the clinic, please wash your hands when you arrive!

If you have a cough, please put on a mask and advise our reception staff.

Effective immediately, we will be working with you to defer any non-urgent appointments until further notice.

The clinic will also offer telephone appointments instead of in-person visits for any issue that does not require a physical examination. Please discuss this option with our reception staff when you are calling to book an appointment.
