Miramar College to Host Free Vaccine Clinic June 15

Miramar College will partner with the County of San Diego to offer free COVID-19 vaccinations on campus June 15. First and second doses will be available from 9:30pm-3:30pm in the courtyard of the Hourglass Recreation Complex near the pool.

Health insurance and appointments are not required to be vaccinated. Appointments also available, if preferred. The number of no-appointment vaccinations are limited per location. Parents or legal guardians must provide their consent for an eligible minor to receive the vaccine. Consent must either be provided in-person by the parent/guardian at the vaccination site OR a parent/guardian can provide their consent in advance by completing a consent form. Only the PfizerBioNTech™ COVID-19 vaccine may be provided to minors at this time. All information is subject to change.

For information on scheduling a vaccination appointment, please visit Coronavirus-SD.com or call 2-1-1. 2-1-1 is available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year in more than 200 languages. All calls are free and confidential.

San Diego Community College District (SDCCD) will increase its on-campus and hybrid classes to at least 22% this fall, with the remainder being online, as the district begins to transition back to a full reopening in spring 2022. In addition, all students and employees who are on-site this fall will be required to be vaccinated — assuming the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) fully authorizes one or more of the vaccines. Exceptions may be granted on medical and religious grounds.

The decision to mandate a vaccine requirement, announced via email on May 18 by SDCCD Chancellor Constance M. Carroll, follows considerable input taken from students and employee groups on scenarios for a safe return to campus. Surveys of students and employees conducted during the current spring semester showed most supported a vaccine requirement.

The SDCCD is developing a process to verify each individual’s vaccination status before they arrive on campus. Students and/or employees who do not wish to be vaccinated, due to religious or medical reasons, will be able to request an exemption and the SDCCD will provide appropriate reasonable accommodations.
