Vaccine Requirements

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact everyone in the community. As the District strives to assist students, employees, and community members in staying healthy, it's clear the vaccine plays an important role in protecting people from getting the COVID-19 virus. 

VCCCD requires all students and employees to be vaccinated.

Students and employees must continue to complete the daily screening form in the MyVCCCD app every time you plan to be on-site.

You must have a green or blue pass to be on campus.

Blue Pass

  • Your Vaccination Card has been Uploaded and Verified on the MyVCCCD App
  • You are ready to visit a screening site on campus.

Green Pass

  • Not Fully Vaccinated
  • You must have completed the following on the MyVCCCD app no later than noon each Sunday to be on campus
    • Two PCR COVID Tests during the prior week
    • Submit your two negative test results
  • You will get a green pass to be on campus Monday and throughout that week.

Important: Wait until you are finished coming to campus for the week to upload your test results.

More information on uploading your vaccination card or test results is available at Healthy Return to Campus. Employees’ tests must occur at least 48 hours apart. 

Religious Exemptions

Students with medical and religious exemptions are still required to be tested. There are no exemptions to testing. Students requesting a religious exemption must submit the forms below to Berenice Rodriguez.

Student Vaccine Exemption Forms

Once forms are completed, email them to Berenice Rodriguez, Senior Administrative Assistant to the Vice President of Student Development, at 


Mask Mandate

Although the state of California and Ventura County have lifted the mask mandate, VCCCD will continue to require masks for all employees, students, and the community at all of our sites, through at least the end of the spring semester.  

Here’s why:

  • Everyone, regardless of vaccination status, will continue to be required to wear masks in schools, along with healthcare facilities, childcare settings, homeless shelters, emergency shelters, corrections, long-term care facilities and public transit.
  • Ventura County Public Health still strongly recommends that masks be used by everyone as an effective tool to prevent the spread of the virus, especially when case rates are high or when additional personal protection is needed. This includes people who have been vaccinated and boosted.

All health and safety protocols currently in place will continue, including:

  • Daily screening
  • Wearing face masks that cover both nose and mouth
  • Twice-weekly testing for those with medical or religious exemptions
  • Tests for students can be taken on consecutive days but not the same day. Testing stations on the college campuses are open to serve students. If you need to get tested off-campus, please visit county COVID-19 Testing information or California All Testing for locations and appointments of valid testing sites.
  • If you test off-campus, please remember that test results must:
    • Show that the test is a PCR
    • Include your first and last name
    • Include your date of birth
    • Include the test and report dates
    • Include the test result

If you have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, please get tested.
