Consistent with their value to do zero harm to patients and staff, several of our clinical affiliates announced a mandatory mandate requiring all of employees, team members, providers, volunteers, students/learners, residents, those who are job shadowing, and temporary employees receive and show documentation of their completed COVID-19 vaccination(s) by 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2021 or before your clinical prep date.
All Health Science Programs comply with all policies, procedures, and guidelines at all clinical agencies affiliated with the College. Therefore, all clinical students, faculty and staff must comply and show proof of vaccination by September 21, 2021 or before your clinical prep date. All students must upload proof of vaccination in our secure location (CastleBranch).
Although clinical affiliates may offer a limited medical and religious exemption to their employees, it is not known if this will be considered for Wake Tech Community College’s students, faculty, and staff.
Please note: Because clinical agencies have mandated that students, faculty and staff provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to participate in clinical. If a student is denied access to any clinical agency, the student will not be allowed to progress in the health science program and will be withdrawn from the program. Please be advised that all Health Science students must maintain all health, immunization, and vaccine requirements to be eligible to participate in clinical.
