SMCCCD COVID-19 Vaccination Resources


SMCCCD is committed to protecting the health and well-being of students, faculty, staff, administrators, and the communities we serve, as well as maintaining higher education access and attainment for our students. We embrace a comprehensive strategy designed to reduce the likelihood of transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

In light of the evidence established to date regarding the safety and effectiveness of available COVID-19 vaccines, the District requires full vaccination against COVID-19 for:

  • all District employees who access campuses, the District office, District facilities, and/or participate in off-site work in-person for the District;
  • all students attending classes, programs, utilizing services or participating in any activity on any campus beginning Spring 2022.

Individuals may request an exemption due to verified medical or religious reasons (as defined in federal or state policy). Those who qualify as exempt are subject to other safety measures as prescribed by the District.

Booster vaccinations are recommended, click here for more information.
