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 Vaccine Clinic

Vaccination helps reduce your chance of severe disease from COVID-19. Further, the more people in a community who are vaccinated and protected, the harder it is for the virus to spread. To date, we’ve benefited from very high rates of vaccination among MSVU community members – let’s keep that going and keep us learning and working safely together.

If you are eligible for a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (including boosters), please plan to attend one of the upcoming on-campus drop-in COVID-19 vaccination clinics:

Monday, September 12, 2022
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Multi-Purpose Room, Rosaria Student Centre

Monday, September 19, 2022
10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Multi-Purpose Room, Rosaria Student Centre

These clinics are open to all – MSVU students, faculty, staff, alumni and members of the public (including children aged 5 and up).

Note that it will be up to Nova Scotia Public Health to determine your vaccine eligibility. If you have a health card, please bring that along. Please also bring record of any previous COVID-19 vaccinations (including vaccinations administered outside of Canada).

No appointment necessary. Masks will be required in the vaccination clinic.

Though proof of vaccination is not currently required to attend campus, all are still strongly encouraged to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (including boosters), in keeping with Public Health guidance.

MSVU employees are eligible for paid time off to get their COVID-19 vaccines/boosters (up to three hours). Please work with your supervisors to make arrangements.
