The RSV clinic is a clinic in place to support infants who are at risk of contracting the Human Respiratory Syncytial virus.
Human Respiratory Syncytial virus (RSV) is a virus that causes respiratory tract infections. It is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections and hospital visits during infancy and childhood.
Infants who meet criteria, as defined by the Ministry of Health, are eligible to receive a course of vaccinations to help prevent them from contracting RSV. Infants will receive five, possibly six doses of the vaccine, depending on the amount of RSV virus being detected in the community during the RSV season.
