Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where can I get a copy of my immunization record to complete the admission form for my program?
A. This is a more complicated question than it seems but we are able to point you in some good directions. If you received immunizations in B.C., the best place to check first is healthgateway.gov.bc.ca If you are not successful at that website, don’t give up. Contact us and we will figure it out together.
Q. Can I come to you clinic if I have a regular family doctor in Prince George?
A. All students and staff are welcome BUT our services do not replace the services of your family physician. Please make every effort to connect with your family physician before booking an appointment with us. The exception to this advice is to use us first for completion of CNC forms such as Immunization Checklists or Withdrawal Forms.
Q. Do I need to be referred to see the Counsellor?
A. No, patients may book appointments with the Counsellor at their discretion.
