2020 flu vaccination available starting Monday November 9

Students, staff, and faculty are invited to get their influenza vaccination through Health Services 

The change of seasons often brings an influenza outbreak. Although influenza activity generally peaks around January, it takes the body about two weeks after vaccination to develop antibodies that will protect against influenza virus infection. For that reason, it's important to get vaccinated before the seasonal outbreak, especially if you fall into the high risk category.

Supporting co-op students: new embedded wellness counsellors

Co-op students can sometimes face unique stress, pressures and feelings of isolation on work term (or during their recruiting term). To support these students, two new mental health staff from Campus Wellness will be available.  

These counsellors understand the co-op program at Waterloo and are another great resource available to help resolve challenging wellness-related situations for students.
