ON institutions help international students get vaccinated against COVID-19

September 1, 2021
Ontario postsecondary institutions are helping international students to get vaccinated against COVID-19 after arriving in Canada so that they can begin their studies with as little interruption as possible. Conestoga College is maintaining contact with students after they arrive, and helping them access vaccination options on campus or in a local pharmacy as soon as they are finished self-isolating. The University of Waterloo is helping international students who have not received a Health Canada authorized vaccine to access one at their on-campus vaccine centres or nearest clinic. Amelia Burton, international student experience manager, said that students who have not received a Health Canada authorized vaccine will be offered a dose “soon upon arrival in Canada.” CBC (ON)
