Mississauga Health recognizes the pivotal role COVID, Cold and Flu Care Clinics (CCFCC) have played during the pandemic to care for people experiencing influenza-like-illnesses and avoid unnecessary visits to the emergency department.

As many CCFCC in Ontario wind down, Mississauga Health will continue to support the needs of the community by extending operations of two clinics until April 30th.
