COVID-19 Vaccine


The following COVID-19 vaccine requirements and guidelines have been developed to maintain a continued safe learning environment.

Vaccine and Booster Requirements

  • Emory University requires all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, with exceptions only for those with approved medical or religious exemptions.
    • Booster locations and relevant information can be found at Vaccines.gov.
  • The deadline to get boosted and verify COVID-19 booster status is Wednesday, January 19, 2022. Those not eligible for the booster, per CDC guidelines, by January 19 must get boosted within two weeks of becoming eligible.
  • Approved COVID-19 vaccination exemptions will be extended for the COVID-19 booster; there is no need to reapply if you have already received an approved exemption (see more exemption information below).
  • Students, faculty, or staff members with an approved exemption are required to conduct a weekly screening test.

Verifying Vaccine and Booster Documentation

Students

Faculty and Staff

  • COVID-19 Vaccine: Faculty and staff members will need to upload their COVID-19 vaccination documentation via the HOME employee portal. Please review documentation instructions here.
  • COVID-19 Booster: All faculty and staff can complete an online form attesting to their booster status by following this link.

Vaccine and Booster Exemption Requests

Unvaccinated faculty, staff, and students can request an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine or the COVID-19 booster for medical or religious reasons only. Exemption requests will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary committee, in alignment with other exemption processes across Emory, to approve or deny the request. Notification of the committee’s decision will be emailed in a timely manner. Approved COVID-19 vaccination exemptions will be extended for the COVID-19 booster; there is no need to reapply if you have already received an approved exemption.

Please note that faculty, staff, and students will still be required to conduct weekly COVID-19 testing through the university’s screening program should their exemption be approved.
