Things to Consider:

·     The vaccination is given in the upper arm (shoulder), so clothing worn should easily expose this area (i.e. loose fitting sleeves or short sleeves).

·     The process should only take about 15 minutes. If you are currently suffering from a cold, fever or flu or any other respiratory illness you should postpone receiving this vaccination until a later date.

Allergies: If you are allergic to eggs, you should consult your doctor prior to receiving this vaccination as it could cause an allergic reaction.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact the VIU Health & Safety office at safety@viu.ca or at 250.740.6283.
