COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Per the CDC, in general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

If you do not meet these requirements, regardless of your age, you are NOT fully vaccinated.  Keep taking all precautions until you are fully vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccines are now available to everyone 12 and older.  Available vaccination sites can be found by visiting the following links:

How to Get a Copy of Your Vaccine Record

If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19, please let us know and send a copy of your vaccine record, showing the type of vaccine, date(s) administered, and location received (send to COVIDEmergencyResponseTeam@johnstoncc.edu and/or jccsafety@johnstoncc.edu).  If you do not have a copy readily available, you may be able to access a copy of your record online by following the steps below.

Using Chrome or Firefox, click on the link(s) below:

You Have A Spot. Take Your Shot. NCDHHS

  • If you associated an email address at any point when getting vaccinated, you may be able to recover your records this way.

  • Once in your account, you can access your records by clicking on the “My Dashboard” tab at the top of the page.  Your appointments should be listed here, as well as a link to “Generate Your COVID-19 Vaccine Information” in a downloadable pdf format.

According to the NCDHHS website, if you received your vaccine from a pharmacy participating in the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program or from another federal vaccine provider such as the U.S. Department of Defense, you will need to get your vaccine information directly from that provider, as it will not be available in the North Carolina COVID-19 Vaccine Portal.

Guidance for Individuals that are Fully Vaccinated

Effective August 24, 2021, Johnston Community College is handling cases involving a fully-vaccinated student or employee who is NOT experiencing COVID-like symptoms according to the below guidelines that have recently been provided by the Johnston County Public Health Department:

A fully-vaccinated person who has been exposed to a COVID-positive person is no longer required to quarantine, ONLY if they are not experiencing COVID-like symptoms.  The same applies to same-household situations.

***As soon as possible, the person exposed must send a copy of their vaccine record to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Team via email at CovidEmergencyResponseTeam@johnstoncc.edu and/or jccsafety@johnstoncc.edu, as well as a completed COVID-19 checklist.***

If you do not have access to your vaccine card, see information above regarding how to get a copy of your vaccine record.

For Non-Household Exposures:

  • The person exposed (fully vaccinated) should still get tested 5-7 days after the exposure, even if they do not have symptoms.  Results should be sent to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Team via email.

  • The person exposed should wear a face covering indoors while in public for 14 days following an exposure, or until they receive their (negative) test result.  NOTE: Face coverings must still be worn at all times when indoors at JCC except when actively eating or drinking.

  • If the person exposed tests positive for COVID-19, they will then isolate away from campus for 10 days.

  • The person exposed should self-monitor for COVID-like symptoms and isolate away from campus if any develop, reporting their status to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Team.  The case will then be evaluated and a plan determined for testing and their safe return to campus.

For Same-Household Exposures:

  • The person exposed (fully-vaccinated) should get tested once it has been 5-7 days of exposure to the COVID-positive household member.  Test results should be sent to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Team via email.

  • The person exposed should wear a face covering indoors until 14 days after the last day of exposure to the COVID-positive household member.  At this time, there is no guidance provided regarding no longer wearing a face covering if a negative test result is obtained.  NOTE: Face coverings must still be worn at all times when indoors at JCC except when actively eating or drinking.

  • If the person exposed tests positive for COVID-19, they will then isolate away from campus for 10 days.  The case will then be evaluated and a plan determined for testing and their safe return to campus.

  • The person exposed should self-monitor for COVID-like symptoms and isolate away from campus if any develop, reporting their status to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Team.  The case will then be evaluated and a plan determined for testing and their safe return to campus.
