RCC has joined colleges and universities across the nation committing to President Joe Biden’s College Vaccine Challenge to help raise the COVID-19 vaccination rate in the U.S. to 70% by the Fourth of July

RCC was the first California community college to sign on to the challenge as a “Vaccine Champion College” committing to taking three key actions: communicating information about the vaccine to faculty, staff, and students; organizing the college community, and delivering the vaccination. 

A “Get Vaccinated” awareness campaign featuring the College mascot getting vaccinated, launched this week to reach students and member of the faculty, staff, and community.
