COVID-19 vaccine

Vaccinations

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 are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021–22 academic year or request an applicable exemption.

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

HOW TO UPLOAD VACCINE DOCUMENTATION

Employees must upload proof of vaccination, including booster shots, or seek an approved exemption in Workday by Jan. 18, 2022, the day spring classes begin. Those who are not yet within the booster window will be required to receive their booster shots as early as possible once they become eligible.

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.

3. Additional details about how to upload booster information can be found here.

HOW TO REQUEST A VACCINE EXEMPTION

The deadline for faculty, staff, and postdoctoral associates to seek a COVID-19 vaccination exemption was Aug. 1, 2021. Please contact your HR Partner with questions. Individuals who have been approved for a COVID-19 vaccine exemption will be required to take a weekly COVID-19 test and continue to wear masks in all indoor spaces.

Exemptions to the vaccination requirement that have already been granted will apply to booster shots; requests for continued exemptions are not required if granted previously.
