New health care option available this COVID, cold and flu season
Belleville, Ontario – The Hastings Prince Edward Ontario Health Team is pleased to announce the launch of COVID, Cold and Flu Care Clinics in collaboration with Quinte Health, Gateway Community Health Centre, Belleville Quinte West Community Health Centre, and other health care partners.
These clinics will help to ensure that people, regardless of age, get the right care, in the right place at the right time, while protecting hospital resources for people who require urgent care.
Clinics are available to provide afterhours care for people who:
- are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, strep, bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infection, cold or flu, sinus infection, vomiting or diarrhea.
- have been unable to book an appointment with a primary care provider or have been referred to the clinic by a health care professional.
- are unable to safely monitor symptoms at home.
- are at higher risk of severe illness, such as immunocompromised individuals regardless of vaccine status.
The intent is to have these clinics available for the entire cold and flu season, or as long as they are needed based on local trends. However, because of staffing challenges in the health care sector, hours of operation and locations may change.
