Vaccines & Immunization Reviews

General vaccine information (including recommended vaccines by age) is available from Quebec Public Health.

Where Can I Get a Vaccine?

Due to the current pandemic situation, the Student Wellness Hub is unable to offer immunization appointments at this time. You may find immunization services at the following locations:

  1. Through your own local clinic or physician
  2. Your local pharmacy
  3. At a CLSC

How Much Does it Cost?

Costs vary by vaccine. Some are free or reimbursable; consult the Quebec Immunization Program and check your insurance coverage (SSMU/PGSS/MCSS or Blue Cross International Health Insurance plans). Certain vaccines are only free for Health Science students.

Required Immunizations for Students Registered in Health Care Programs

Students registered in a health care program may need to complete a series of immunizations prior to being admitted to a program of study or placed in a clinical setting. We recommend starting the process as soon as possible as some vaccines may require you to follow immunization schedules that last several months. Delays in completing your immunization requirements or failure to complete the process may result in the revocation of your offer of admission or clinical placement.

Please select the appropriate form for additional instructions from your faculty (more forms to be added shortly).

Students are encouraged to complete their form at a local clinic or CLSC. Alternatively, students may also submit copies of their supporting documentation (childhood vaccination booklet, x-rays, laboratory results, and medical consultations) directly to the Student Wellness Hub via our portal for review by our nursing team. Prior to doing so, please ensure you have opened a medical file at the Student Wellness Hub and completed our consent form as we cannot proceed to review your submission without these prerequisites. Should you have questions, our front-line services team can help guide you through the process during our normal business hours.

Students are asked to submit their duly completed and signed immunization forms (with supporting documentation if specified) or their supporting immunization documentation via our secure document submission platform. Our expected turn-around time to review submissions and communicate the results with your unit is 4-8 weeks. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you once your documents have been reviewed.
