*All visitors (including parents/guardians of children under 12 attending campus activities) must complete the online Visitor Declaration Form before coming to campus. The form requires you to confirm that you are following MSVU’s vaccine/testing requirement. For more information about visitors in Residence at this time, please see the vaccine FAQ.
MSVU requires all students, faculty and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as possible and by October 13 at the latest. Proof of vaccination will be required. Those who choose not to be vaccinated for medical, religious or cultural reasons must be tested for COVID-19 twice a week.
As a reminder, masks are mandatory in all common indoor spaces on campus until the end of the winter 2022 semester. Learn more about MSVU’s mask protocol.
Where can I get vaccinated?
Students are encouraged to get vaccinated in your home community before coming to campus if at all possible. That said, if you are travelling to Halifax to study and need a vaccine when you arrive, you can get one or both doses here.
COVID-19 vaccine appointments can be booked through Nova Scotia Public Health.
- If you have a Nova Scotia Health Card, you can book online.
- If you don’t have an NS Health Card, you can make a vaccine appointment by calling 1-833-797-7772 (you need to be in Canada to call and the call must be made from a Canadian telephone number).
- If you are currently residing elsewhere in Canada, you can get more information about local vaccination clinics.
Of course, we will also continue to implement a number of other important pandemic safety measures on campus, including reduced classroom capacities, enhanced cleaning protocols, improved ventilation and mask use in common areas. We are also offering rapid COVID-19 testing on-campus for all students, faculty and staff. Regardless of your vaccination status, regular testing is still strongly recommended by Public Health.
Students with questions about MSVU’s COVID-19 response are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Experience at firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty and staff with questions are encouraged to speak to their dean, chair, director or supervisor, or contact email@example.com.
