Effective 20 April 2022

As a health care clinic providing care to a range of patients at risk, YXE Women’s Health and Women’s Wellness Physiotherapy will continue with the following practices to keep all of our patients, clients, staff and families safe.

 

  • All physicians and staff will wear masks in the clinic.

 

  • We require all persons entering the clinic to wear a medical style disposable mask. We can provide a mask for patients who do not have one.

 

  • We can allow one adult to accompany patients with appointments.  This person must be feeling well, and must wear a mask.  They may need to wait outside the waiting room if it is congested and be called in for the actual appointment.  We are not able to allow children at this time.  Newborns with new mothers are welcome.

 

  • We will maintain distancing in our waiting areas.

 

  • We encourage all eligible patients and clients to be fully immunized against Covid-19.

 

Covid Vaccine and Pregnancy

The Covid vaccine is recommended in pregnancy because the risk of the infection in pregnancy outweighs potential risk of the vaccine. Preventing infection is best. Talk to your doctor about your personal health situation and to answer any questions.

COVID-19 vaccines and other vaccines may be administered without regard to timing, even simultaneously.  This includes Tdap and influenza vaccine.  Current data shows that vaccine efficacy is unaffected.
