Vaccine Mandate

All employees, and students who come on-campus, must be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption. Those who have an approved exemption, and want to be on campus, are required to test weekly. Free testing is available.

The current CDC definition states that someone is fully vaccinated two weeks after they get a second dose of an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine or two weeks after they get a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine. If you are not already vaccinated, please visit the My Turn – California COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling website to schedule a free appointment to receive a vaccine. Boosters are strongly recommended but not required.

Fall 2022 Student Compliance Measures

Students must be in compliance with the NOCCCD Vaccine Mandate to access in-person classes and services. Students may be asked to show their vaccine mandate status in myGateway or on the Fullerton College mobile app at any time while accessing in-person classes and/or services.

As of Aug. 22, 2022, Fullerton College students will no longer need to go through a check-in area to obtain a wristband before going to class or accessing in-person services.

Masks Recommended Indoors

As of June 1, 2022, face coverings are recommended but are no longer required while indoors. As COVID-19 cases rise in the county, we strongly recommend that people wear masks to protect themselves and others.

What is the NOCCCD Vaccination Mandate

On August 24, 2021, the NOCCCD Board of Trustees, the District’s governing board, approved mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all NOCCCD employees and students who come on campus with allowance for religious or medical exemptions as defined by law. Effective November 1, 2021, all students who come on campus to attend classes or access services must be verified as “fully vaccinated”* or have an approved exemption and submit to weekly COVID-19 testing.

The NOCCCD vaccine mandate went into effect on November 1, 2021, but students and employees are still encouraged to upload their records to gain compliance if they have not done so already. Free testing is required through the fall 2022 semester for students and employees who have approved exemptions. However, free testing is available to all members of the campus community.

What does fully vaccinated mean?

According to the CDC as of April 2, 2022:

  • A person is fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving all recommended doses in the primary series of their COVID-19 vaccination.
