If your child is well but you would like to see a health professional, you should contact your CLSC. Your CLSC is the gateway to a number of services including vaccination, breast-feeding clinics, and referrals to other resources. It can also provide information on available services and explanations on how to access services elsewhere, if necessary.
For health advice from a nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, call Info-Santé.
