All members of the Brandeis community — faculty, staff, and students — are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 with a WHO- or FDA-authorized or approved vaccine, or have a documented and approved medical or religious exemption on file. "Fully vaccinated" means that an individual has received all recommended doses of vaccines and boosters when eligible.
Documentation of Vaccination
All vaccination records must be uploaded to Medicat, the University’s electronic health records system, prior to the first day of classes for students, or, prior to the first day of employment for employees. All vaccination records and medical or religious exemption requests are confidential.
- Staff and faculty may review the complete COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for Employees on the HR website. Religious or medical exemption requests, along with any questions about receiving the vaccine should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Students may request religious exemptions through the Dean of Students Office. Student requests for medical exemptions or questions about receiving the vaccine should be directed to email@example.com.
