COVID-19 vaccination requirement

July 30, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Announcements, Updates & Resources

Today, leadership announced that all students, faculty and staff on all three campuses of the University of Michigan (including Michigan Medicine) are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and must submit their vaccination information before the start of the fall term on August 30.

The announcement comes as the rate of COVID-19 infections increases across the country, particularly in states and sub-populations with the lowest vaccination rates and as the predominant delta variant proves to be much more infectious.

“Widespread vaccination is the primary and most effective tool that will bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control and it is the key to a vibrant and engaging academic year,” officials wrote in the email.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is free, safe and highly effective. It can be obtained through doctors’ offices, clinics, pharmacies and health departments here and all around the state and nation. U-M has multiple sites where members of our community can be vaccinated, and we provide two hours of paid time off work for each shot.

If you have further questions or concerns, please direct them to your immediate supervisor or appropriate chain of command. If you still need additional information, email COVID-vaccine@med.umich.edu.  Emails will be triaged to the appropriate area or personnel so responses may be delayed.
