Important: There have been some recent changes to the immunization requirements at RRC Polytech so please read the following carefully.
Veterinary Technology Immunizations
Rabies and tetanus immunizations are administered free of charge by Health Services for pre-exposure protection for students admitted to the Veterinary Technology program. Once offered admission, students are required to read, complete, and return to Health Services the RRC Polytech Veterinary Technology Program Questionnaire.
Note: All students accepting admission into the Veterinary Technology program must also read the information on required program immunizations (rabies and tetanus).
Healthcare Programs Immunizations
Students offered admission to healthcare programs at RRC Polytech will need to maintain an up-to-date record of immunizations and tests as a condition of enrollment. This process no longer needs to be started prior to admission. Students do not need to see their own healthcare provider first.
Once an offer of admission is accepted by the student, the student will need to complete and submit the RRC Polytech Healthcare Program Questionnaire. The completed questionnaire can be mailed, dropped off, faxed, or scanned and emailed to:
Health Services, Notre Dame Campus
HM08 – 2055 Notre Dame Ave.

Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm
Note: All students accepting admission must also read the RRC Polytech Immunizations for Healthcare Programs information. In addition, please review the frequently asked questions below.
