As a reminder, to verify compliance with President Biden’s Executive Order 14042 and the accompanying guidance from the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force, The University is required to ensure that all UAH employees receive their final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by Jan. 4, 2022, unless they have an approved medical, disability, or religious exemption.

As part of UAH’s compliance process, all employees must complete a COVID-19 Vaccination Status Release survey regarding permission to share vaccination status with UAH Human Resources or Student Affairs. The survey consists of one (yes/no) question. We encourage all employees to complete the survey now, even if you have not yet been vaccinated.

Employees who receive COVID-19 vaccines from an off-campus provider must also upload their vaccine card to the UAH Health Portal or bring a copy of the card to the Faculty Staff Clinic or Student Health Center. If you have already uploaded/submitted your vaccine card, you do not need to submit it again. Detailed instructions on how to upload a vaccine card to the secure portal can be found here.

If you are not fully vaccinated, please refer to the following dates, which vary by vaccine manufacturer.

  • Moderna
    • First dose no later than Dec. 7, 2021
    • Second dose no later than Jan. 4, 2022
  • Pfizer
    • First dose no later than Dec. 14, 2021
    • Second dose no later than Jan. 4, 2022
  • Johnson & Johnson
    • Single dose no later than Jan. 4, 2022

UAH currently has free Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines available. Appointments can be made through the UAH Health Portal or by calling 256.824.2400.

Employees seeking an exemption from the vaccination requirement must submit a request to Human Resources at using the Medical Accommodation or the Religious Accommodation request form no later than Jan. 4, 2022.

As a reminder, as a federal contractor and like many higher education institutions, UAH is obligated to comply with this federal mandate. Our institution does not have flexibility in its application or enforcement. For more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions webpage. For questions about the vaccine requirement, email or call 256-824-2210.
