“The AlgomaOHT Flu Clinic’s purpose is to provide as many people as we can with access to the flu shot,” says Dr. Jodie Stewart, CEO of the Algoma District Medical Group and family physician at the Group Health Centre. “The community flu clinic is a new initiative for the AlgomaOHT. The Clinic has been developed to support our community with ease of access to the flu shot, provide support to health care partners who provide flu clinics, and recognize that a new approach was needed to accommodate the demand for the flu shot during these unprecedented times. We know that health care is currently being delivered differently, with virtual physician appointments. We also know that our community is concerned with how they can safely access a flu shot. The AlgomaOHT Flu Clinic has been designed with these concerns in mind,” says Stewart.
Oversight for the AlgomaOHT Flu Clinic is being provided by the Group Health Centre, who in partnership with GFL Memorial Gardens, the City of Sault Ste. Marie, Sault College, and Algoma Public Health have developed the Flu Clinic with utmost adherence to public safety. Darren Fetterly, Vice President of Clinical Operations – Group Health Centre, explains, “The AlgomaOHT Flu Clinic, has been designed with safety first plan. The following measures are in effect; visits will be done by appointment (no walk-ins), all individuals will be pre-screened for illness/exposure to COVID-19, physical distancing, controlled flow, and infection prevention and control measures will be followed, increased environmental cleaning, and medical staff on site.”

About The Algoma Ontario Health Team (AlgomaOHT)
We are a group of Algoma-based health care providers working together as an Ontario Health Team – The Algoma Ontario Health Team [AlgomaOHT].
The AlgomaOHT will concentrate its initial efforts on improving coordination on frail seniors and patients with health conditions that would be better served in the community, rather than in the emergency department. When fully implemented, the team will broaden its work to ensure improved coordination of care for all patients, including mental health & addictions and rural health.
We will focus on a full and coordinated continuum of care for our community. When fully implemented, patients will have access to the right care, right team, and right care setting. Individuals will experience seamless transitions throughout their care journey in a system that is understandable, digitally-enabled, and collaborative in its approaches to care.
