The clinical sites require that you’re fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC as 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. If you don’t meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated, and Carroll Community College cannot guarantee you will be permitted in the clinical setting. Exceptions are at the discretion of the clinical location. Please note, if you register for this course, but cannot attend clinicals due to your vaccination status, a refund will not be issued. You will be required to wear Fit Tested N95 mask or equivalent mask while in the clinical setting. No facial hair, which interferes with the seal of the mask, is permitted. This N 95 mask will be provided for you by the College.
