SAIT Health Clinic

Update: Call 403.284.8666 before you come in

Until further notice, anyone visiting the clinic must have an appointment.

Take the Alberta Health Services online self-assessment to determine if you should be tested for COVID-19. Call 8-1-1 for any health related concerns.

By observing this process you will help protect patients currently in the clinic who may be pregnant, have ongoing respiratory issues or compromised immune systems.


Update: Annual flu vaccine

Did you know? If you have Alberta Health Care, you can get your annual flu shot at any pharmacy currently booking appointments online. Walk-ins will not be permitted at most pharmacies/clinics this year.

The Prepared Traveller Travel Clinic is nearby SAIT, at the Shoppers Drug Mart in North Hill Shopping Centre.

Getting your flu shot is more important now than ever before. Contact your local pharmacy or physician to arrange for immunization — SAIT’s Health Clinic will not be offering flu shots this year.

Learn more about immunization eligibility and access through Alberta Health Services.


Update: Human Papillomavirus (HPV-9) vaccine

The HPV-9 vaccine is now a publicly funded vaccine. Anyone under the age of 27 who is attending school in Alberta can receive the vaccine free of charge.

What is HPV?

HPV is a virus that causes skin and genital warts. HPV infection will often go away on its own. Some people get a long-term infection, which can lead to cancer of the vagina, vulva, penis, anus, mouth, or throat. HPV causes almost all cervical cancers. Learn more about HPV.

Get the vaccine

HPV-9 vaccine is available by appointment at three Public Health Immunization Clinics. Please call 811 to schedule your appointment. 

Anyone 27 years of age or older, must have a physician prescription to purchase the HPV vaccine from a pharmacy.
