Frequently Asked Questions from Students
LPC offers FREE COVID vaccines on campus by City Health Urgent Care testing site in parking lot P. Refer to the City Health Livermore COVID-19 vaccination website for more information.
All visitors to campus must be vaccinated. Students who are only taking on-line classes and not visiting campus, are not required to be vaccinated.
Five (5) days prior to your registration appointment date, you will receive an email sent to your college assigned Zonemail account from CLEARED4, with directions on how to upload your vaccine verification.
Three options will be offered for submitting proof of vaccination:
Option 1: Upload a photo or scanned copy of completed CDC COVID-19 vaccination card to the CLEARED4 link you received in your Zonemail account
Option 2: Upload your digital vaccination record (typically a JPG or PNG file), which you can obtain at https://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov.
Option 3: Connect health data through CLEARED4 to your Electronic Health Record (EHR) provided by your insurance and/or health care provider.
Students who are fully vaccinated and do not have access to CLEARED4 may gain access to the campus by providing proof of vaccination at one of the campus vaccination verification tables; upon approval, students will receive a verification sticker to place on their student ID.
Use Class-Web for the CLEARED4 link. Follow these instructions:
- Go into Class-Web
- Click the "Check Your Priority Registration Status" link on main page and look for the CLEARED4 Upload Link.
You may obtain your blue pass via Class Web.
If you are not fully vaccinated before your registration opens, you will be unable to register for in-person classes. However, if you are in the process of getting vaccinated, you are encouraged to enroll in online classes to secure your spring enrollment. Upon completion of your 2nd dose of Pfizer/Moderna or single dose of Johnson & Johnson, you will be cleared two weeks following your last dose of the vaccine, at which point you will be cleared to register for in-person classes.
For students who are fully vaccinated or students who are unvaccinated but plan to take online classes and utilize online student services only, you may do so, without having to submit a request for an exemption.
Students may request a COVID-19 Vaccination Exemption as defined in federal or state laws and regulations based on the following: 1) for a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance that conflicts with the District’s requirement that such students receive a COVID-19 vaccination; or 2) for a medical reason due to a condition for which receiving an approved vaccine presents a significant risk of a serious adverse reaction.
If you are approved for an exemption from vaccination, you are encouraged to take online classes whenever available for your program of study and utilize online student services. You will also be required to wear an N-95 mask at all times in class and on campus and to provide a weekly negative COVID-19 test result.
No a Booster shot is not required.
Students are required to be “fully vaccinated,” however a booster shot is not required, and upload their proof of vaccination to CLEARED4 in order to enroll in face-to-face classes or to access the campus and college facilities. Fully vaccinated means you have met the 14-day immunization period after your final dose.
- Two doses = your second dose must be received before you register, then two weeks after the second dose you are fully vaccinated to come on campus.
- One dose = two weeks after your one dose vaccine, you be fully vaccinated to come on campus.
Students attending online-only classes and who will not be visiting campus for any reason are not required to be vaccinated.
