As a part of the admissions process and per the BJC Employee Immunization Policy, new students beginning their program of study and all enrolled GSON nursing students must document the completion of COVID-19 vaccination no later than 15 days prior to the start of the term and be compliant 45 days after the beginning of the term. This information must be uploaded into CastleBranch showing that complete COVID-19 vaccination has taken place.
Influenza (flu) vaccination is mandatory during the influenza season, October-March of each year. For students beginning their programs of study in the spring, documentation of vaccination is required prior to the first day of class.
Students seeking a medical exemption or religious accommodation must submit documentation for their exemption/accommodation of the COVID-19 or Influenza vaccination. The links below are to the religious and medical exemption/accommodation forms for COVID and Influenza vaccinations. Depending upon which request is being submitted, the individual document states where to email the request.
Note: Goldfarb nursing students are eligible to receive COVID vaccinations via BJC Clinics or other community vaccination sites.
