COVID-19 Response and Reopening

COVID-19 Vaccine & Booster Card Upload

COCC will now require COVID-19 boosters for the same students who are required to have full vaccination. This applies to students in Addiction Studies, Dental Assisting, Early Childhood Education, Licensed Massage Therapist, Medical Assistant, Nursing, Nursing Assistant, Paramedic, Emergency Medical Technician, Pharmacy Technician, and Veterinary Technician programs. 

The decision to require the booster is based on the CDC's recommendation of COVID-19 boosters for those whose full vaccination was completed at least five months ago. COVID-19 boosters are scientifically proven to reduce COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths, including currently circulating variants. 

Students who already received an exemption will have it applied to the booster requirement, thus you will NOT need to complete another exemption but will continue to be required to get a weekly COVID-19 test. 

You must receive your COVID-19 booster by Tuesday, March 1, 2022 if the date of your last COVID-19 vaccination (second dose of Pfizer or Moderna or first dose of Johnson & Johnson) was more than five months ago

You must receive your COVID-19 booster no later than six months after your last dose if the date of your last COVID-19 vaccination (second dose of Pfizer or Moderna or first dose of Johnson & Johnson) was fewer than five months ago.

INSTRUCTIONS: Please complete the required information below. If you’ve already uploaded your COVID vaccine card without the booster, please upload the card again with the booster information on it.
