Consult a Health Care Provider

Have a question about your health and the COVID-19 vaccine?

Consult a Physician: The Scarborough Health Network has created a vaccine confidence clinic, called VaxFacts, to help patients who are on the fence about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. It provides an opportunity for a one-to-one, judgment-free phone call with a physician to address any questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccines. The clinic has successfully counselled hundreds of patients and is now available nationwide.

Make an appointment:

  1. 416-438-2911, ext. 5738
  2. Or visit Access the VaxFacts Clinic website.

Consult a Paediatric Registered Nurse (RN): The SickKids COVID-19 Vaccine Consult Service is a by-appointment phone service that provides a safe, judgement-free space to have an open conversation about the COVID-19 vaccine for children and youth. It is available in multiple languages, using over-the-phone language interpretation.

We are here to support residents of Ontario 5 years or older and their parents, caregivers or legal guardians who:

  • Have specific questions or concerns related to the COVID-19 vaccine for youth/children that you cannot find the answer to elsewhere.
  • Have complex medical histories or medical conditions (i.e. chronic illness) and/or their parents/caregivers.
  • Require additional support for their COVID-19 vaccine due to medical complexity, developmental disorder or mobility, communication, behavioural or other specialized needs, including significant needle phobia.
