Immunization Reviews

Vaccine Requirements For 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:

Immunization Review Forms

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 immunization 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.

Nurses follow the guidelines from the Protocole D'Immunization du Quebec (PIQ) for all public health vaccines.

Students are asked to submit their duly completed and signed immunization forms (with supporting documentation if specified) or their supporting immunization documentation here:

Our expected turnaround time to review submissions and communicate the results with your unit is up to 4 weeks. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you once your documents have been reviewed.

Where Can I Get A Vaccine?


You may find immunization services through:

  2. Your local pharmacy, private or travel clinics. Book through Clic Santé
  3. Community Health and Social Services Centres (CLSCs) (for RAMQ holders) - based on your postal code
  4. Jewish General Hospital TB Clinic for TST testing (need MD referral) 
  5. Montreal Chest Institute (with referral from Hub doctor or nurse)

How Much Do Vaccines 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.
