FLU Shots Coming Soon!

The FLU shots will be here soon. Immunize BC has announced that the annual influenza injections will be made available around October 17th. We hope to begin administration starting Monday October 21st. Please check the Immunize BC website for updates: https://immunizebc.ca/influenza

This year at REACH Centre, FLU shots are available to everyone 5 years and older on a drop in basis at the pharmacy during regular hours. There will be no charge for the injection. Unfortunately, this season FLUMIST nasal spray is not available in Canada. For children under 5 years or for clients that require further consultation, please book an appointment with one of our nurses at the medical department.

Of note, Children 6 months to 9 years getting the flu shot for the first time will need 2 doses at a 4 week interval. Furthermore, clients 65 years and older should also receive a one time Pneumovax 23 injection and will be administered a slightly different quadravalent FLU shot for better response. 

If you have any further questions please call our pharmacy at 604-216-3136 or refer to the Immunize BC link above. 

Thank you Patricia for 22 years at REACH!

After 22 years of hard work and dedication, our MFC Manager, Patricia, is retiring from REACH. Thank you for everything you have done for the community and our programs. We'll miss you immensely and wish you the best in your future endeavours!

Taking Team-Based Care to a New Level

Starting September 1st, 2019, there will be some changes in how we serve our patients at the REACH Medical Clinic. The biggest change is that we will be splitting the medical clinic into two teams. Our goal is for these smaller teams to share the knowledge of our patient's needs and the care they receive. Smaller care teams will also allow care providers to create a stronger relationship with each patient to help meet their individual needs.

To meet the teams and for more information on the changes please look at our Patient Information Sheet. Information sheets will also be available in the waiting rooms.

Please contact REACH Medical at 604-254-1354 for any questions or concerns.
