Vaccine centre opens at Health Services

Thursday, July 8, 2021

This message was originally sent to Waterloo students and employees by Vivek Goel, president and vice-chancellor.

  • A vaccine centre for students, employees and their families will open at Health Services on July 12, 2021
  • You can now book an appointment by phone
  • More information to come about Waterloo Region Step 2 changes on Monday

I am pleased to announce that the University of Waterloo will open a vaccine centre at Health Services for students and employees on July 12, 2021.
This is a positive step for the University and an important piece of our overall plans to support a safe and staged return to campus. An on-campus vaccine centre for students, employees, and their families will help more of our university community get vaccinated, which is critical as we work towards more in-person campus experiences in September.
I encourage everyone in our campus community to get their first or second dose as soon as possible. This advice follows that of local public health officials, the Ontario and Federal governments and the World Health Organization regarding how best to contain the pandemic and safely re-open our communities.
Please find more information below on how to schedule an appointment.
Lastly, with the recent announcement that Waterloo Region is moving into Step 2 on Monday, you can expect an update on this early next week.
