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.
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.
We have two COVID-19 vaccine clinics for students, faculty and staff coming up on campus as follows:
- Thursday, September 16 – 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
- Thursday, September 23 – 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Both will take place in the Multi-Purpose Room on the 3rd floor of the Rosaria Student Centre. Be sure to bring your health card or another form of ID if you don’t have a health card. If you’ve already had your first dose of vaccine, please bring confirmation. Questions about the campus vaccine clinic can be directed to Maxine Brewer, Manager of Health Services at MSVU at Maxine.firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com. Faculty and staff with questions are encouraged to speak to their dean, chair, director or supervisor, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
