Vaccines and Working, Studying or Accessing Services at U of G
Getting vaccinated is one way we can protect ourselves and others from COVID-19. Wearing a mask, keeping 2m apart, washing our hands often and following COVID-19 safety protocols are also important in helping control the spread.
The University will strictly follow public health and government guidelines to help ensure a safe return to campus.
Getting Vaccinated in Guelph
Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination plan includes all those currently living in Canada.
If you are living or working in the region, you can register for vaccination with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health. On the registration form, international students can leave the OHIP Number field blank.
You will be contacted when you are able to book an appointment and must bring a piece of government issued identification (e.g., passport) to your appointment to confirm your identity.
Some international students may receive their first dose of the vaccine in their home country and be eligible for their second dose while in Canada. The University is currently working with government partners on behalf of international students to help facilitate this process.
