COVID-19 Vaccine Program


Starting February 28, Red Deer Polytechnic will end its COVID-19 vaccination program for all students, employees and visitors. 

  • This means individuals will no longer be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, show proof of negative rapid test results or have an approved exemption to learn, teach or work at Red Deer Polytechnic.  
  • As has always been the case, all students must continue to meet the vaccination requirements of governing bodies, agencies, organizations or other post-secondary institutions in which they may have their practicums, work-integrated learning activities or placements. 
    • Please note that, as of the Alberta Health Services guidelines released on July 18, Red Deer Polytechnic students, faculty and staff will no longer be required to get immunized for COVID-19 while attending, working or living on campus.
    • If you are a student and you have specific questions about what this means for your program or practicum placement, please email the studentconnect [at] rdpolytech [dot] ca (Student Connect Centre)

At Red Deer Polytechnic, we are a highly vaccinated community. We continue to encourage people to receive vaccinations and boosters. This helps to protect us all as we move to the future.
