With back to school right around the corner, Royal Roads University is planning ahead to ensure a safe return to campus.

Universities in British Columbia have not implemented a mandatory vaccine policy as a requirement for returning to campus. 

However, accessing non-essential services, such as on-campus indoor venues, gyms, restaurants, or sporting events, will require proof of vaccination.

Royal Roads University, in partnership with Island Health, will be offering three on-campus clinics this September, to help those who still need their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The RRU vaccination clinics are open to anyone aged 12 and over needing to be vaccinated. This includes students, staff, faculty and the general public. 

Appointments are not required. In order to receive a dose, you are required to bring your personal health number (PHN). If you do not have a PHN, you can call Immunizations BC at 1-833-838-2323 and one will be created for you. 

If you are unable to receive this number prior to visiting for your vaccination an Island Health staff member at the clinic will be happy to assist you. 

The clinics will be held in the university’s Dogwood Auditorium.
