Dear Patients (updated 25JAN21)

In order to do our part to slow the surging cases of the virus and follow the directives of the Ontario Ministry of Health, the following modified clinic operations continue:

SHOULD PEOPLE WITH HIV GET THE COVID-19 VACCINE

DR. MONA & THE CDC SAY: YES !!!

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that "mRNA COVID-19 vaccines may be administered to people with underlying medical conditions provided they have not had a severe or immediate allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in the vaccine". 
They note that people with HIV might be at increased risk for severe COVID-19 and can receive a COVID-19 vaccine.  "However, they should be aware of the limited safety data... People living with HIV were included in the clinical trials. through safety data specific to this group are not yet available at this time".
