Vaccine Update

On December 9th, Canada approved its first COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 Task Force, funded by the Government of Canada, will be collaborating with National Advisory Committee of Immunization (NACI) and together with the provincial Ministries of Health, a strategy will be implemented to administer the vaccine to the Canadian population.

The distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine will be controlled by the Canadian Task Force who will receive a few million doses of the vaccine by early next year, in which prioritization will be given to high risk populations such as residents and staff of Nursing Homes. Currently we have been given no indication of when Medcan will receive the vaccine, but we will continue to provide updates as more information is available.

COVID-19 ASYMPTOMATIC PCR TESTING

Medcan teamed up with Switch Health, a leader in COVID-19 testing, to provide fast, safe and reliable testing—including guaranteed next-day results.* You can now choose to get tested on-site at Medcan or in the comfort of your own home.

Curious if you were previously exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19? Include an antibody test as an add-on to your Annual Health Assessment or schedule it as a standalone appointment at Medcan.

How we’re keeping you safe

Medcan is a proud member of the Post Promise program, which demonstrates our commitment to providing a safe and healthy environment to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. From pre-appointment screenings to social distancing protocols, important steps are being taken on-site to ensure a safe experience for our clients and staff members.

Quality air filtration

The HVAC system in our building is equipped with MERV-13 filtration—the highest commercial standard—on all of its air handling units and return air systems. The air on each floor of Medcan is replaced twice hourly at minimum, and in the next few weeks we look forward to introducing an in-duct UV disinfection system throughout the building.

As always, the health and safety of our clients and staff members remains our top priority. Here’s what we’re doing to keep you safe on-site.
