COVID-19 vaccine

COVID-19 is a vaccine-preventable disease, and we strongly encourage all members of our community to get inoculated.


Students are strongly encouraged to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to safeguard their health and the health of all members of our University and South Florida communities.

Faculty, staff, and postdoctoral associates employed by the University of Miami on the Coral Gables and Marine campuses are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021–22 academic year, subject to certain exceptions, including medical and religious exemptions. Employees should receive their final vaccine dose by Aug. 1 to be fully vaccinated by the start of the fall term.

To be fully vaccinated, you must be at least two weeks past receiving your final vaccine dose.


Faculty, staff, and postdoctoral associates seeking a COVID-19 vaccination exemption must apply through Workday by Aug. 1, 2021. If you wish to request an exemption, please review information regarding the required supporting documentation prior to submitting your request. Click here for more information

Individuals who have been approved for a COVID-19 vaccine exemption will be required to take a COVID-19 test twice a week and continue to wear masks in all indoor spaces. 


Students vaccinated outside of UHealth should upload a copy of their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to their MyUHealthChart account.

Employees can submit COVID-19 vaccination confirmation into Workday by following one of the methods below: 

1. If you previously uploaded your vaccination confirmation to your MyUHealthChart account and would like validation to be automatically transferred to Workday, you must authorize release of this information. No medical information will be provided to Workday in this transfer. Click here for instructions. And for further assistance, please review this tip sheet.

2. Alternatively, if you wish to upload a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card directly into Workday, click here to review the instructions.


COVID-19 vaccines are available to all University of Miami employees through the Walgreens in UHealth Tower at 1400 NW 12th Avenue. Appointments are required and can be scheduled by calling 305-702-9066.
