Are PCC Students required to be vaccinated?

While the College highly encourages everyone to be vaccinated against COVID-19, PCC students are not required to be vaccinated at this time.

Is the vaccine mandatory for Pima Community College faculty and staff?

President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14042 and subsequent guidance require federal contractors, such as PCC to have all employees fully vaccinated against COVID-19. However, the order is currently under court challenges. While court challenges are underway, the College had paused enforcement of the separation of employment process for non-compliance until further notice and pending further court rulings and guidance from the federal government.

While enforcement is paused, the College will continue to implement the vaccination mandate process, collect vaccination information from all PCC employees and evaluate reasonable requests for a medical/disability accommodation or exemption, or an accommodation or exemption for a sincerely held religious belief.  It is important to continue this process in the event that the court ruling is overturned, and a federal deadline is re-imposed.

How do employees inform the College that they have received the vaccine?

If you are a Pima employee who has already been fully vaccinated and have uploaded your vaccination card to the Employee Service Center, there is no need to do anything further.

If you have not been vaccinated against COVID-19, please make sure you have received the necessary shots to be vaccinated, either two shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. A copy of your vaccination card will need to be uploaded to the Employee Service Center.

Where can I get the COVID-19 Vaccine?

The Pima County Health Department has a list of area vaccination locations, as well as information on which brands of vaccines are available at each location.

Is there a cost to the vaccine?

You will be asked for your insurance card, but currently there is no charge if you do not have insurance or Medicare. 

What should I expect after I receive the vaccine?

The CDC has details on what to expect after you receive the vaccine. 

The Pima County Health Departmentalso has additional information on their website:

The Arizona Department of Health Services also has additional information.
