Vaccine/Booster Requirements and Submission Procedure

This requirement does not apply to students who are fully remote and will not be entering campus buildings for any purpose. 

• MCCS/NMCC will grant exemptions for individuals who cannot be vaccinated for documented medical reasons (see process below)

• The protocol applies to any student or trainee accessing MCCS/NMCC facilities, including our off-site education centers. 

Current Requirement

Students must provide proof they received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine prior to attending their first in-person class. Students who require a second dose of a vaccine must provide proof of the second dose no later than 30 days from the date of their first in-person class. This timetable ensures that all students will have had at least one shot before going inside a building, and that the entire on-campus student body will have completed their vaccinations approximately 30 days from the semester start.

To submit proof of vaccination please follow our already established procedure shared below. 

COVID-19 Booster Requirement

Any student or trainee accessing NMCC facilities, including off-site education centers, must provide proof of booster shots no later than one month after becoming eligible for a booster. Per CDC guidelines, a person is eligible to get a booster shot five months after the last shot of the Pfizer vaccination series,  six months after the last shot of the Moderna series, or two months after the J&J vaccine.

Vaccination/Booster Submission Process

We have created a process for you to upload your proof of vaccination/booster within the NMCC portal. Simply go to the NMCC Portal Home Page and click on, “COVID-19 Vaccination/Booster Submission” near the top of the page. You will then need to complete drop-down menus for the vaccination type, the date of vaccination(s), then upload a picture or scanned image of your vaccination card. When this is complete, simply click “Submit Vaccination Information”. It’s that simple!
