Vaccination requirements in care settings

Practicum students and faculty working in health care and long-term care facilities are required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination, or an exemption, effective Oct. 26, 2021, as outlined in a new order from the Provincial Health Officer. The Hospital and Community (Health Care and Other Services) COVID-19 Vaccination Status Information and Preventive Measures order applies to practicum students and faculty who are in a “care location for training or research purposes”. Affected students must report their vaccination status to the Health Sciences Placement Network and provide proof of vaccination directly to the health authority operator if requested. Camosun will be facilitating the provision of vaccination information of students into the system on their behalf. Students with questions should speak with instructors. Faculty should speak with their Chair if they have questions.
