All students, faculty and staff on the three U-M campuses, including Michigan Medicine, are required to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations (including a booster shot) and to submit their vaccination information. This includes all students and employees (regular and temporary), including:

  • Employees who are not currently working (e.g., off work on unpaid leaves of absence, in unpaid reduction-in-force status, no longer working in a temporary appointment where the termination hasn’t been processed yet).
  • Students and employees in fully remote situations.
  • Students in fully remote programs and located in international locations where the vaccine is unavailable. These students are advised to request a temporary postponement using the appropriate form on Wolverine Access.

Bargained-for University of Michigan employees who work in Michigan Medicine or in a health care facility must comply with the federal COVID-19 vaccination mandate.  Employees must have received their first dose or submitted an exemption request by January 27, 2022, and have received their second dose or an approved exemption by February 28, 2022. Additionally, some bargained-for employees have additional requirements pertaining to the booster; any bargained-for employee who is uncertain what is required should consult with their union representative for further information.
