Get flu shots at Huronia Nurse Practitoner-Led Clinic

You know it’s that time of year when notices of flu clinics start to arrive. The Huronia Nurse Practitoner-Led Clinic is hosting a number of clinics, from 4-7 p.m. on Oct. 30, Nov. 6, 13, 20, 27.
The clinic is also accepting new patients. Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, it is located in Oro-Medonte, a short drive from Barrie. It’s northeast of the city in the Horseshoe Valley area.
The clinic offers primary health services, including preventative care, to people of all ages. Care ranges from a complete physical to managing minor of complex illnesses.
Staff includes three primary health care nurse practitioners and a part-time pharmacist. The clinic works with off-site physician partners, working as a team to meet health care needs.
Nurse practitioners are becoming a more integral part of the health care system, as a solution to the lack of doctors and the growing number of people attending walk-in clinics and hospital emergency rooms for primary care. Nurse practitioners do complete physical examinations, order diagnostic tests like ultrasounds, X-rays or mammograms, order blood work to screen for illness or disease, diagnose illness and disease and prescribe necessary medications.
