Medical Exemptions of Covid Vaccination
We are receiving several requests for information about medical exemptions for Covid Vaccination. Please be aware these are very uncommon. See below the Notice from the OMA:
Contraindications for Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines include hypersensitivity to the vaccine, any ingredients of the vaccine or components of its container. The Ministry of Health recommends that patients with an allergy to any of the vaccine ingredients (including polyethylene glycol, tromethamine and polysorbate), or who experienced a severe allergic reaction or anaphylaxis following the first dose should be referred to an allergist/immunologist for evaluation to determine if and how they may safely receive the vaccine. This represents the largest group of individuals who will receive an interim medical exemption pending evaluation.
Read about the risk of allergic reaction to SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and recommended evaluation and management. AstraZeneca is also contraindicated in patients with previous episodes of capillary leak
syndrome or who experienced venous and/or arterial thrombosis with thrombocytopenia following vaccination with AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine/COVISHIELD. As a precautionary measure, individuals who were diagnosed with myocarditis/pericarditis after dose 1 of Pfizer or Moderna should wait to receive their second dose until more information is available.
For a list of ingredients in each vaccine, refer to the product monographs:
Pfizer product monograph
Moderna product monograph
AstraZeneca product monograph

We are a part of a Family Health Organization, and have associated with a number of colleagues in our neighborhood. This in order to be able to provide after hours care and telephone support evenings and weekends for our registered patients.
We are part of a Family Health Organization, which means that our patients can access telephone Health Advise by one of our Nurses.
