All staff received the email message “UW–Madison responds to federal COVID-19 vaccination mandate” from the Office of the Chancellor on November 11, 2021.
The message states:
- The executive order requires that employees complete their vaccination series (one dose of Johnson & Johnson or two doses of Pfizer or Moderna) no later than Jan. 4, 2022.
- All employees must provide proof of vaccination or receive a medical or religious accommodation exempting them from the requirement. This includes student hourly employees.
- Employees (including student hourly employees) who have not yet provided proof of vaccination will receive additional information via email.
- Employees (including student hourly employees) who have already provided proof of vaccination to UHS do not need to take any further action.
