It's FLU Vaccine time of year again!
The FLU Vaccine is a MANDATORY REQUIREMENT of the School of Nursing and students must submit proof of their Flu Vaccine to the NPCO upon immunization by NOVEMBER 30TH, 2018. The NPCO will update HSPnet so there is no need to produce your CPP at the window.
To SUBMIT YOUR PROOF OF YOUR FLU VACCINATION, your options are:
OPTION 1: Shoppers Drug Mart in York Lanes is happy to administer the Influenza Vaccine and has also offered to organize several clinics for School of Nursing students who want to reduce their wait times. Students who choose to have the Flu Shot at Shoppers Drug Mart in York Lanes need only to identify themselves as NURSING STUDENTS and provide their Student ID. Students choosing this option would not be required to submit their proof of their Flu Vaccine as Shoppers’ staff will do it on students' behalf. If you wish to reduce your wait time, you may attend one of their clinics which runs between 10am and 6pm on the following dates:
Monday, October 29th
Wednesday, October 31st
Friday, November 2nd
Again, students are also welcome to come at any time outside of the clinic days and one of their trained staff members will be happy to administer the vaccine.
OPTION 2: If you choose to have your Influenza Vaccine administered at a medical clinic of your choice, simply electronically Scan/Photograph your proof of your Flu Vaccination, clearly showing the date you received your vaccination, your name and student number, and email to email@example.com.
OPTION 3: PHOTOCOPY your proof of your Flu Vaccination, clearly showing the date you received your vaccination, your name & student number, and drop it off in the School of Nursing DROP BOX, located on the 3rd floor, HNES, BESIDE room 328B (Turn left as you exit the elevators and follow the signs marked "Assignment Drop Box"). As the NPCO will confidentially dispose of this information once it has been entered in your profile, it is important to RETAIN the ORIGINAL proof for your files.
* If you have a medically-supported reason for not receiving the Flu Vaccine (e.g. allergy, pregnancy, etc.) please submit a note from your MD to the NPCO (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 15th, 2018.
* If you have chosen not to get the Flu Vaccine for personal reasons, you are required to discuss your decision with your Undergraduate Program Director
