In support of Northern Marianas College’s commitment to the health and safety of its campus community, the College has announced that beginning in the Fall 2021 semester, the COVID-19 vaccination would be part of the health clearance requirements for students who are enrolled in face-to-face or in-person classes.
The vaccination requirement allows NMC to offer a fuller range of in-person campus experiences in the fall, including co-curricular activities and events. Additionally, vaccination remains the most effective way to protect those who are not able to receive vaccination (children under age 12 and those who are medically exempted) and to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end. Further, the vaccine requirement furthers the CNMI’s goal of reaching herd immunity against the COVID-19 virus.
The Commonwealth Health Center Corporation will be administering vaccines to individuals who received their first dose of the vaccine this Saturday, May 29, 2021 from 8am to 12pm at Northern Marianas College on Saipan.
The Commonwealth Healthcare Corporation (CHCC), with guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will be offering 12 to 15-year-olds the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine at the MCAT vaccination site starting May 14, 2021.
The COVID-19 vaccine is now available for individuals 16 years and over in Saipan (18 years and older for Rota and Tinian.) We strongly urge you, for your safety, as well as your family's and our community's safety and wellbeing, to vaccinate as soon as possible.
Northern Marianas College has announced that it is migrating its face to face classes to a virtual/online platform for the week of March 15, 2021 through March 21, 2021 (one week). Other classes that are already conducted virtually will continue as scheduled.
