The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District (CLPCCD) will require all students attending in-person classes or participating in any activity on any campus in-person in the spring semester to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof.
It is the belief of the Board of Trustees that as a public agency it is incumbent upon our district to ensure our students are learning and our faculty and staff are working in the safest possible environment. After much consultation with health officials and our education partners throughout the state, the Board felt it best to go in this direction and mandate a COVID-19 vaccination for all faculty and staff, and all students attending in-person classes beginning in spring 2022. Within the mandate, the Board made provisions for medical and religious exemptions and our students, faculty and staff were notified of this.
Students who take in-person classes or need to be on campus for any reason, including accessing services such as tutoring, the Library, STEM Center, etc., must submit proof of vaccination. Students are required to have their vaccination information or exemption approved before they are eligible to register for in-person classes and must have received their final dose 14 days prior before becoming eligible to visit CLPCCD’s campuses. Registration for spring 2022 classes opens on November 9, 2021, and classes will begin on January 18, 2022.
Students attending online-only classes for the spring 2022 semester who will not be visiting campus for any reason are not required to upload their vaccination information to register for spring classes. The district also permits exemptions for those who have a verified medical or religious reason (as defined in federal or state laws and regulations) but may be subject to additional safety protocols, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
To submit proof of vaccination, students must upload a photo or scanned copy of their completed Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 vaccination card. They may also submit proof by sharing their health data via CLEARED4 to their Electronic Health Record or by uploading their proof through the QR code from the Digital Smart Health Card accessible at myvaccinerecard.cdph.ca.gov.
The district will send updates to students’ email addresses if additional information becomes available.
