Vaccination Documentation

Through December 15, 65.5% of our population has had their vaccination information verified. Another 7.5% have uploaded their information and are awaiting verification.

The deadline for uploading information is close of business on January 14, 2022. All faculty, students, staff, and administrators who have previously declared that they are vaccinated should now upload their vaccination information if they have not done so already.

Thank you for your cooperation in our work to keep ourselves and each other healthy. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact the HICT.
