All persons currently at the university and that are covered by this policy must be fully vaccinated by November 15, 2021, unless granted a medical or religious exemption. All persons hired by the University after September 24, 2021, are required to show proof they are fully vaccinated prior to their start date unless granted a medical or religious exemption. Persons will be provided information on how to apply for a medical or religious exception prior to their first day of work and will not be permitted to come to campus until a determination has been made with respect to the exemption request.
A person is considered fully vaccinated when two weeks have passed since completion of a COVID-19 vaccine series (for example, 1 dose of the J&J vaccine or 2 doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine); as well as any boosters consistent with CDC and FDA guidance.
All persons covered by this policy must provide proof of vaccination by uploading a copy of their official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to the Campus Health Patient Portal.
Persons who have attempted to comply but are unable to meet the deadlines for full vaccination or submitting the required documents for an exemption, through no fault of their own, may contact Human Resources in advance of November 1, 2021, to request a temporary extension of the deadline.
