Important Update on Covid-19 Vaccine for LBCC Employees
When we sent out our first communication regarding the Covid-19 vaccines, we were unsure of the number of vaccinations LBCC would be allotted. LBCC has been informed by the City of Long Beach Health and Human Services Department that they received enough vaccinations for LBCC on-site Essential Personnel only.
On-site Essential Personnel will receive a second email with the appointment link. Please read this carefully for important instructions and the deadline to make the appointment. As there are a limited number of vaccines allotted for LBCC, do not to share this link with LBCC non-essential personnel, your family or friends as this will take up appointments that are designated for other LBCC essential personnel.
I know this will be disappointing for those colleagues who also hoped to receive the vaccination next week. As you may recall, the Covid-19 vaccine distribution is prioritized in different phases. Employees of Long Beach Community College District are part of the Phase 1B group, which includes educational institutions. We will update you with additional information regarding vaccinations for other employees as it becomes available.
Please see the attached Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
As always, the safety of our students and colleagues remains paramount. Thank you very much for your patience and understanding as we work through this distribution process together.
