The 2018 Flu Campaign

For 2018-19, the annual flu vaccination campaign will be different from past years due to the restrictions imposed by the accessory fee law that was passed in Québec in January 2017. McGill Student Health can offer the vaccine free for those that meet at least one the Department of Public Health's Criteria.  Also, students that require it for academic purposes  (e.g within the health science faculties) are also eligible to receive the vaccine free of charge. Your health science faculty might be holding a special clinic so please contact your student affairs office for more information.

McGill Student Health Services will not be able to provide the vaccine for those students who do not meet any of the criterias for the free shot due to recent legislation changes. However, you can pay to receive the flu shot at many local pharmacies, CIUSS locations, private clinics, and more:

 

Eligible students may call Student Health at 514-398-6017 as of November 27, 2018 to make an appointment to get the flu shot in December 2018. 

Please note: To access services, you must be currently enrolled and paying the Student Services fee. The fee is automatically charged to the student account of undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows every fall and winter term. Certain other categories of students may opt to pay a fee to use the services.
