You don’t need to be vaccinated for online classes, and most classes are still being taught online this fall. (Check the class schedule for complete listings.) But if you are planning to be on campus this fall – for a
class, a meeting, a visit to the Library, an athletic event or for any purpose – you
must be vaccinated against COVID-19.
You must submit proof of your final vaccination no later than Oct. 1, or you will be dropped from any on-campus classes in which you're registered.
Fully vaccinated means you must have received your final shot – your second shot for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or your first shot if it's
the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine – at least two weeks before coming to campus.
You have uploaded proof that you have received your final shot – your second shot for the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or your first shot if it's the
Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine – at least two weeks before coming to campus.
You have received at least one vaccination shot and you comply with ALL of the following requirements:
Upload proof of your firstshotbefore coming to campus
Upload proof of your final shot by Oct. 1
Follow these additional rules until two weeks after your final shot:
Obtain a lab test for COVID-19 (home tests will not be accepted) within three days of each visit to campus
Upload your negative test result to the PyraMED system. (Follow the same steps listed below for uploading proof of vaccination, but choose COVID-19 Test Result as the document type.)
Wear a face mask at all times, indoors and outside, while on campus
Practice social distancing at all times
If you test positive for COVID-19, you must quarantine at home for 10 days (except
to receive medical treatment)
If there is an outbreak of COVID-19 on campus, you may be asked to leave temporarily
for your safety and that of others
We understand if you have questions or concerns. De Anza is following the advice of
local, state and federal officals who all agree that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. You can learn more at this California Department of Public Health website.
You may request an exemption from the vaccination requirement on the basis of verified medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs. You'll find instructions and forms for submitting a request on
the Vaccination Exemption webpage.
De Anza is following Santa Clara County health rules, which require everyone to wear face masks indoors, even if you are vaccinated. We also recommend wearing a face mask for all outdoor gatherings on campus.
We've made it easy to upload a photo or electronic copy of your vaccination card by using the PyraMED online health portal, a secure medical records system that you can access through the Apps section in MyPortal.
