Data continues to indicate that as the percentage of vaccinated individuals increases, COVID-19 case counts decrease. Durham College (DC) recognizes that increased vaccination rates play an important role in re-establishing a sense of normalcy and reducing on-campus transmission, while keeping our community safe. DC and its campus partner Ontario Tech University, with the endorsement of Durham Region Public Health, have made vaccination against COVID-19 a condition of residence occupancy. How do I get vaccinated? You can book your vaccination through the Province of Ontario’s booking site. Additionally, the Region of Durham has a number of mass vaccination clinics, including one at the university’s Campus Ice Centre. For more information, visit the region’s COVID-19 website. What other measures will students need to follow on campus? We’re committed to helping stop the spread of COVID-19 and will continue to implement measures as outlined by the Durham Region Health Department. Specific details around vaccination requirements and guidelines for residence students will be shared directly with students when they receive their official on-campus residence acceptance.
