Where: The clinic nearest McGill’s downtown campus is at Plaza Alexis Nihon, located at Atwater and Ste.Catherine Street (Atwater Metro Station on the Green line). If you live off campus you may want to go to another clinic that is more convenient. Click here to find the clinic nearest you.
When: The clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., 7 days a week. Coupons to determine your appointment time are distributed each day, first come first served, until daily supply of vaccines is exhausted.
What you need: Quebec residents need health care card and proof of residency; students from other provinces need provincial health card and student id, plus proof of residency; students from out of the country need student id, plus proof of residency.
Why: Public health authorities recommend vaccination as an effective way to avoid H1N1 (swine) flu, a virus that can make you very sick for several days.
Vaccinations for general public (older than 19 years without any underlying medical condition) are available as of December 7, 2009. This date is subject to change depending on the supply of vaccines. See complete up to date information at Pandémie Québec's website, or visit McGill's health site.
