​ There have been recent concerns regarding the AstraZeneca vaccines and the risk of blood clots. Our recommendation, in line with Thrombosis Canada (see link below), is to proceed with the AstraZeneca vaccine if it is available to you. The risk of contracting COVID (or developing a clot as a complication of COVID illness) is significantly higher then the risk of clots from the vaccine. For more information see below:

​ Despite the Ontario government announcement regarding primary care receiving vaccines, we do not have vaccines in our clinic and do not have any further information when we may receive this. Therefore we are not scheduling appointments for vaccinations and we do not have a wait list. We will post updates in our "News" section regarding vaccine availability regularly.

If you have any questions about the vaccines, or need assistance accessing your vaccination please contact your doctor. The easiest way to contact us is via e-mail at appointments@broadwayfamilymd.com.

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.

All the best,

Broadway Family Medicine
