Please be aware that although a COVID-19 vaccination is not required to attend St. Clair College,  some of our placement sites may require students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 to be eligible to attend. Unfortunately we cannot predict if a placement site will begin to require full vaccination and as such, we are encouraging all students to consider vaccination.  If the requirement of your placement sites change at any point, you will be notified immediately by the College.

It is important to note that if placements sites do require students to be fully vaccinated to attend their place of business, students who are not fully vaccinated cannot be provided with a placement for their program and therefore will not be able to complete their programs.

If you have any questions about the COVID-19 vaccines, please contact our St. Clair College Health Centre at 519-972-2727 ext. 4484 (in Windsor) or 519-354-9100 ext. 3729 (in Chatham).
