Do you need a COVID-19 vaccine?
UPDATE: Walk-ins now available to everyone over the age of 12.
On Wednesday, July 28, the University of Manitoba is pleased to host a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Indigenous and international students and their families, as well as the general public. The clinic will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room in University Centre on the UM Fort Garry campus from 9:00am–3:00pm. Click here to book your appointment or just walk in. Free parking is available for anyone coming to the clinic in Q lot. The entrance to the clinic will be through the Helen Glass Centre. There is construction in front of University Centre, so please avoid the main doors.
The clinic will be administering first and second doses. For anyone booking their second dose, remember that to be eligible, 28 days must have passed between your first and second shots, and if this is your second shot, you had to have received a Moderna, Pfizer or AstraZeneca first. If you received your first shot at the UM vaccine clinic on June 30, over 28 days have passed and you are encouraged to come back for your second dose. Only individuals over 12 will be able to get a vaccine at this clinic.
There are a few things you will need when getting your vaccine on campus:
- Bring your Manitoba health card (if you have one) or another form of government-issued ID (a valid passport).
- Remember to print your vaccination consent form. There will be forms on hand if you do not have access to a printer.
- Bring your UM student card with you. Students and their families will be given priority for the vaccine. Non-students will be asked to wait until all students and their families have received their vaccines.
If you book an appointment for the UM clinic and have an existing vaccine appointment at one of the provincial sites, please remember to cancel your provincial appointment. This will free up that space for someone who needs it.
The clinic is being run by the University of Manitoba in partnership with the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences and Shared Health Manitoba.
If you have questions, contact the Virtual Help Advising Centre, which is open 8:30am–9:00pm on weekdays. If you have questions about vaccines, visit the Province of Manitoba information page. If you have questions about your health, contact your healthcare provider.
