You can call us at x3243 and the medical admin will arrange an appointment for you, depending on what you need. Please note travel medicine is not covered by most insurances so there may be a cost that you will have to pay.

You can get your immunization records one of three ways:

  1. You can ask your caregivers if they have a copy of your “yellow card”.  Many caregivers were given this immunization card when you were a baby and brought it to appointments to have completed by the doctor after an immunization was given for their personal records.
  2. You can check with the Public Health Department in the area where you grew up.  Many times they will have documentation of immunizations you received through your family doctor, community, and school programs.  If you moved around during your childhood, you may need to contact each of the Public Health Departments in the areas that you resided to see if they have anything on record.
  3. You can try contacting your childhood doctor’s office directly to see if they still have your immunization records on file.

As long as you have a valid OHIP card or have purchased insurance (for example, Sun Life or guard.me), there is no cost to you to have a routine appointment with one of our physicians or nurse practitioners.  There are some situations where you may require forms to be completed, or certain specialty services to be performed that require a fee, however you would be notified of this prior to engaging in those services.

Yes.  If you have a valid provincial health card or International Insurance, you may book an appointment with one of our clinicians and the various services we offer.

There is a $30.00 fee for missed appointment with our physicians, and a $100.00 fee for missed appointments with our specialists.  If you are unable to keep your appointment time, please be sure to cancel your appointment 24 hours prior to avoid incurring such a fee.

Annual TB testing requirements can be done through Student Health Services and is a multi-step process.  Firstly, you would book a telephone appointment with one of our clinicians to review your medical history, reason for testing, and to obtain consent for having the test done.  Secondly, you will need to book an appointment with one of our nurses to come into Harrison Hall to have the test administered.  And lastly, you will need to book an appointment 48 to 72 hours later to come into Harrison Hall to have the test read.  If you require a 2 Step TB Skin Test, you will have to repeat steps 2 and 3 one to four weeks after receiving your initial test.
