Student flu shot clinics starting October 21

Student flu shot clinics

This year getting a flu shot is more important than ever. Protecting yourself from the seasonal flu helps reduce risk of illness and protects those in the community who are high risk.

Students can book an appointment to get a free flu shot from Student Wellness by calling 905.525.9140 ext. 27700.

Appointments will be available on Oct. 21, 22 and 29 at the Peter George Centre for Living and Learning.

Walk-ins will not be accepted. Please complete the Ontario Self-Screening tool prior to coming to campus and bring a screenshot of your completed screening to the appointment.

Please bring your health card/UHIP card, wear a mask, and a short-sleeved shirt. International student partners are allowed to register for the clinic(s).

Employee flu shot clinics

Human Resources will also provide flu shot clinics for McMaster employees working onsite November 17 and 18. Information to schedule appointments will be available in the coming weeks.

Flu season typically runs from late fall to early spring. The Public Health Agency of Canada recommends that all people 6 months and older get an annual flu vaccine.
