Access to our campuses is limited due to COVID-19, but we're still here to support you.

Updated vaccine procedure at Sheridan

Aug 17, 2021

Given the latest direction from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health about immunization policies for health care settings and the education sector -- including post-secondary institutions -- Sheridan will require everyone who comes to campus to demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated, effective this fall. 

Those who are not vaccinated will be provided with information on vaccines and required to participate in routine, rapid antigen testing. Sheridan will offer vaccination for all members of the community through our Health Centre. An option will exist for individuals to apply for an exemption.

Details about implementation will be available in the coming weeks.

Since the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 to be a global health emergency 18 months ago, Sheridan’s response has been guided by an unwavering commitment to protect the health and holistic wellbeing of our entire learning community. Throughout this crisis, Sheridan committed to navigating its pandemic response together with our student and employee community, in ways that demonstrate kindness, generosity and compassion.

“With Canada’s public health experts declaring a fourth wave of the pandemic and acknowledging that vaccination is the best solution for living alongside COVID-19 and its dangerous variants, Sheridan commits to remaining flexible and we continue to demonstrate resiliency, agility, and courage,” said Dr. Janet Morrison, Sheridan’s President and Vice Chancellor. “In the face of these challenging circumstances, we’ll continue to do what we can to create a sense of comfort, support, and stability, while always placing paramount emphasis on protecting health and safety.”

These policies complement the robust work that Sheridan has undertaken throughout the summer to ensure a safe return to campus including mandatory mask requirements, upgraded ventilation in our buildings, enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols, way-finding signage, controlled access and contact tracing procedures. Sheridan recently announced that vaccines would be required for students in high-risk or high traffic settings, such as those who intend to participate in varsity athletics or live in Residence.
