Ready for the Now, Prepared for the Future

UPDATED: July 11, 2021

The best way to thrive at SFCC and keep your families and communities safe is by getting your COVID-19 vaccinations.

Vaccines work and save lives. While a vast majority of Santa Feans have strongly embraced vaccinations, including SFCC employees and students, we are not done. Vaccines provide strong defenses for keeping our community safe, and are an important strategy in eradicating this virus.

Register online for your vaccine at https://cvvaccine.nmhealth.org/

Also, watch this page for upcoming vaccine clinics: sfcc.edu/covid/vax/.

In accordance with public health orders, all SFCC employees, students, and visitors are required to wear a masks while on campus and to continue practicing social distancing of six feet apart.
