Augustana Campus is currently preparing its campus clinic and more information will be forwarded to all Augustana students and staff, when details are finalized. Note that the University Health Centre (2-200 SUB) is offering influenza shots onsite starting on Oct. 15. The centre will not offer influenza shots during the Main Campus clinics.
The clinics will be open only to students and staff, not to family members, because of the set amount of vaccine the university is receiving. Public clinics run by Alberta Health Services are again open across the province and available to every Alberta resident. Any family member of staff and students can access the seasonal influenza shot that way.
Staff and students will be asked to identify themselves (e.g. ONEcard or equivalent) before receiving the vaccination, as well as provide an Alberta health-care number (or the equivalent).
To help facilitate the efficient operation of the vaccination blitz, please try to avoid either choosing to show up first thing on the first day, or leaving it to the last day. You can also help speed things up by ensuring you bring the proper documentation, as above, and if possible, by wearing short-sleeved clothing.
