Influenza Immunizations will be offered on North Campus at the University Health Centre and UHC Pharmacy this year instead of through a mass clinic.

Preparing For Your Influenza (flu) Shot

 Before receiving your influenza immunization, remember to:

  • Come prepared with your ONEcard and a valid Alberta health care card (or other health card).
  • Wear short sleeves.
  • Plan adequate time for your visit as it is recommended that patients wait onsite for fifteen minutes following their immunization.
  • Complete the pre-registration form on the day that you plan on getting your immunization.
  • Eat something before being immunized (if you tend to become light-headed during/following injections).
