Dental Vaccination Requirements


The allied dental programs require students to have and be up to date with several vaccinations for admission into either program, including but not limited to:

  • Hepatitis B series.
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (TDap).
  • Varicella Zoster.
  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR).
  • Tuberculosis (TB) skin test.
  • Annual influenza shot.
  • Covid-19 Vaccine*

*Covid-19 Vaccine Requirements

Students enrolled or intending to enroll in any of GRCC's Health Programs that include off campus clinical components (credit or non-credit) will require a COVID-19 vaccine. This vaccine will be in addition to any other vaccination and program requirements dictated by accreditation standards and clinical placement requirements. This decision will best ensure the health and success of our students. Students currently in GRCC health programs will be required to complete their COVID-19 vaccination by Nov. 1, 2021. As a reminder, regardless of any exemption granted by GRCC, this does not guarantee an exemption from the vaccine requirement at individually assigned clinical sites, and thus may impact a student's ability to progress.
