Preventive Care

Our Family Health Team will encourage you to access preventive health care that is available in Ontario including cancer screening and vaccinations such as:

  1. Cervical Cancer screening – recommended for all people with a cervix to be screened for cervical cancer with a Pap smear every three years between ages 25 to 69 (or more often if you have had an abnormal test in the past)
  2. Breast Cancer screening – recommended for all people with breasts to be screened for breast cancer with a mammogram every two years between ages 50 and 74 (or more often if you are high risk)
  3. Colorectal Cancer screening – recommended for all people to be screened for colorectal cancer with a ‘ColonCancerCheck’ FIT test every two years between ages 50 to 74 (or by colonoscopy if you are high risk)
  4. Vaccines that are recommended include:
    1. Flu vaccination – annual in fall/winter, especially for high risk populations (seniors over 65, children between ages 6 months – 5 years, pregnant people)
