COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement
Vanderbilt University has made the safety of our students, faculty and staff, and our surrounding communities a top priority. As part of that commitment, the University recently announced that students, faculty, and staff, are required to be vaccinated against COVID. As a prospective and/or a new employee at Vanderbilt, you will be required to comply with the University’s vaccination protocol. Effective, August 1, 2021, proof of full vaccination or an approved accommodation will be required before the start of employment in order to work at Vanderbilt University.
An accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done (i.e. not receiving the vaccine) that enables a person with a need for accommodation to enjoy equal employment opportunities. Medical conditions and religious beliefs are two examples of reasonable accommodations. Accommodations for medical and religious exemptions can be requested with the Equal, Opportunity and Access Office https://www.vanderbilt.edu/eoa/.
