Where to get a vaccination without an appointment (walk-in clinics) 

McGill will be hosting a walk-in vaccination clinic at Redpath Hall - September 28

If you would like to get a COVID vaccination without an appointment, many COVID Vaccination clinics around Montreal offer first-come-first-serve walk-in vaccinations. A list of clinics is available here.

From the downtown campus, Palais des congrès de Montréal offers first or second dose vaccinations of Pfizer or Moderna (depending on availability) without an appointment. The clinic is a 20-minute walk from campus and is open every day from 08:00-19:00.

There is no walk-in clinic that is close to the Macdonald campus. However, you can book an appointment at the UniPrix on rue Sainte-Anne, about a 15 minute walk from the Mac campus.
