At MSVU, we continue to benefit from exceptionally high rates of vaccination among members of our university community (more than 98% during the fall 2021 and winter 2022 semesters). It remains advised that all eligible members of the MSVU community get fully vaccinated as soon as possible (including booster shots).
Based on our evolving context, including protocols across similar organizations (e.g. provincial and federal governments), the vaccine requirement implemented at MSVU in the summer of 2021 is being suspended effective May 1, 2022 (including suspension of the use of the visitor declaration form).
Should a change in circumstance necessitate it at any point, the university’s vaccine requirement could be re-instated.
Where can I get vaccinated?
COVID-19 vaccine appointments can be booked through Nova Scotia Public Health.

On-campus rapid testing paused
Effective May 1, the on-campus COVID-19 rapid testing clinic will also be suspended. Those in need of rapid testing can pick-up tests from provincial sources. You can find more information about rapid and PCR COVID-19 testing in Nova Scotia on the NS Health website.
