With cold and flu season slowly picking up again, many McGill students have been asking about accessing the flu vaccine on campus.

 

The Student Wellness Hub will be offering flu vaccine the week of November 18th to the following populations:

  • Adults who have certain chronic diseases (as defined by the eligibility criteria of Quebec’s Flu Vaccination Program)
  • Pregnant women, in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of their pregnancy
  • Family members who live in the same household of a child under 6 months of age or a person at higher risk of being hospitalized and to their caregivers
  • Health care workers

 

Students can call in to book an appointment as of 10:00 AM November 18th for the following periods (subject to vaccine availability):

  • Tuesday, November 19th from 1:00 PM-4:00 PM
  • Wednesday, November 20th from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM
  • Thursday, November 21st from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM

Unfortunately, because the Quebec government no longer offers free flu vaccines to the general population, we cannot offer flu shots to the rest of our students (law regarding health accessory fees). If you would still like to be immunized for influenza, you can obtain the vaccine at a local pharmacy, clinic, or CLSC for a small fee. Please note only students who have paid the Student Services fee are eligible to use the services provided by the Student Wellness Hub.
