There are three rare situations in which a patient would qualify for medical exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine:

1.     Severe allergic reaction (i.e., anaphylaxis) to a previous dose of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine, as confirmed by an allergist


2.     An allergy to a component (PEG (Polyethylene glycol), Tromethamine and Polysorbate), of the COVID-19 vaccine, as confirmed by an allergist


3.     Myocarditis or pericarditis after a first dose of an mRNA vaccine – as a precautionary measure, the second dose of the series should be deferred in individuals who experience myocarditis or pericarditis following a first dose of an mRNA vaccine as confirmed by a physician, until more information is available.


***The physicians at Grandview will be writing COVID-19 vaccination medical exemption notes based on the criteria laid out by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.  The CPSO advises that your physician is not able to provide a letter to exempt you from a COVID vaccine on the basis of any religious or personal beliefs, or for any medical condition not listed above.***

Mental Health

Being healthy means keeping your mind as well as your body healthy.

When you are mentally healthy, you enjoy your life and the people in it and you are better to cope with difficult times. Being active, eating healthy and learning to manage stress are all ways you can improve your mental health. Sometimes situations, feelings and behaviors can be overwhelming, difficult to manage and interfere with your quality of life and you may benefit from professional help.

Mental illness is not uncommon. One in five Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime. It can affect people of all ages, education and income levels and cultures.

Grandview Medical Centre Family Health Team offers a referral-based Mental Health program that provides time-limited individual counseling and assessments for people with mild to moderate problems,  by qualified social workers and psychologists.

If you are feeling suicidal - Please call 911 or 

Crisis Outreach at 519 - 744 - 1813 for age 16 or over or

have someone take you to the nearest Emergency Dep't.

If you're having trouble managing a difficult period in your life or if you suspect that you have a mental illness speak to your family doctor or any member or our Family Health Team; speaking openly will help to ensure that you are referred to the appropriate health professional.
