Students Studying With Masks On

COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Updated: September 14, 2021

SBCC is committed to keeping our Campus Community up to date on the most important news and information relating to access to COVID-19 vaccines. As COVID-19 continues to impact our community, vaccines are one of the most important tools to end the pandemic. Our county is working hard to continue making vaccines available to everyone as soon as possible, so that every resident has the opportunity to be vaccinated. 

At a special Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees meeting held on August 5, 2021, the Board passed Resolution No. 1 - COVID-19 Immunization. The resolution requires “full” (as defined by the U.S. Center for Disease Control) COVID-19 vaccination by October 1, 2021; all students, employees, and members of the public should have their second shot of Pfizer or Moderna - or their first shot of Johnson & Johnson - vaccine by Sept. 17 in order to qualify for full vaccination by October 1st. Immunization verification must be provided to SBCC as a condition of:

  • Entering an SBCC campus building
  • Attending an in-person SBCC class
  • Using a service located off-campus

This applies to all students, employees,  and members of the public unless they have obtained an approved exemption based on medical, disability, religious grounds, or a deferral based on pregnancy.
