COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements

For the 2021 fall semester, we are requiring full COVID-19 vaccination and proof of full vaccination for students, staff, contractors and visitors accessing campus or living in Student Residence.

You are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after you have received your final dosage of an approved vaccine (usually a 2nd dose).

Up to October 15, if you are not fully vaccinated, you must produce proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid test taken within the previous seven days of the day you come to campus, and complete a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination educational session found in Moodle.  Proof of a negative test is required even if you have an approved exemption to vaccination.

As of October 16, only those who are fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption (with a negative COVID-19 rapid test from the previous 72 hours) will be allowed to access campus.  A negative COVID-19 test result alone will not be sufficient for access.

If you have received your full dosage of an approved vaccine:

  • You should only upload your vaccination status after you have received your full dosage (usually two doses).
  • Until that 14-day period after your final dose passes, if you are coming to campus you will have to produce proof of a negative COVID-19 test, even if you have already uploaded your full vaccination status.
  • Utilize the online screening form in myCambrian and our express entry options at designated entrances in order to make your access to campus more efficient.

If you have an approved exemption:

  • Provide a negative rapid (antigen) test, (valid within the previous 7 days up to October 15, or 72 hours as of October 16) at a designated registration entrance.
  • Note: As of October 16, those with approved exemptions will be provided appropriate accommodations.

Withdrawals and refunds

Please note that the last day to withdraw from a program and receive a refund is September 20, 2021.

Exemptions to COVID-19 Vaccination

Students and staff can seek an exemption to COVID-19 vaccination based on medical or religious/creed grounds, in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Exemption forms are available in myCambrian, in the new COVID-19 Vaccination Registration section found on the main Welcome page.

Once again, thank you for your continued cooperation. Truly, we are all in this together.

If you have been vaccinated outside of Ontario or outside of Canada, you are asked to contact the Public Health Sudbury & Districts (PHSD) COVID-19 call centre (www.phsd.ca/contact or 705-522-9200 or 1-866-522-9200, and press 1 for the COVID-19 line). You can also email at www.phsd.ca/contact.

You will then be referred to a public health nurse who will assess your vaccination status, document your immunization in COVAX and advise you accordingly (series valid/complete or need additional immunization). It is important that your vaccination be assessed as there are situations that may require you to be re-immunized despite being vaccinated with an approved WHO (World Health Organization) vaccine.

For your convenience, Cambrian will be hosting on-site vaccination clinics.  We are also working with local public health to arrange additional clinics on campus.  For clinics within Greater Sudbury, visit www.phsd.ca.

Some of the major retailers within a short walk to the college may also be offering walk-in clinics. You may want to check with Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart Supercentre (New Sudbury Centre), and the Real Canadian Superstore.

A rapid (antigen) COVID-19 test is one that can be administered by a health care professional or by yourself. A rapid (antigen) test does not confirm if you have COVID-19. It detects the presence of antigens (proteins) linked to COVID-19. If you test positive for antigens, you need a follow-up polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to determine if you have COVID. That test is administered by a health care professional and results could take several days.
