News & Updates
HCC can provide the MMR (Mumps) vaccine to those individuals who have not had 2 documented doses. The vaccine is provided through Peel Public Health to eligible individuals. If you think you may require mumps vaccination (or are unsure), please call the HCC to book an appointment with a nurse to review your immunization record and discuss an appointment with one of the clinic doctors. Please try to bring a copy of your immunization record with you.
Detailed information about Mumps can be found in this fact sheet from Peel Public Health
