To document vaccination, employees must provide or show one of the following approved types of documentation:
a copy of the COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (CDC Form MLS-319813_r, published on September 3, 2020);
a copy of the record of immunization from a health care provider or pharmacy;
a copy of medical records documenting the vaccination;
a copy of immunization records from a public health or State immunization information system; or
a copy of any other official documentation verifying vaccination with information on the vaccine name, date(s) of administration, and the name of health care professional or clinic site administering vaccine.
Student vaccination statuses will be kept confidential as part of their education record and will be disclosed only as permitted by law. Student vaccination statuses may be shared with:
MU Student Health Center personnel
Individuals with contact tracing responsibilities
Individuals managing our COVID-19 response
Faculty, staff and student employee vaccination statuses will be kept confidential and will only be shared with university personnel for the purposes of monitoring public health conditions on campus as well as determining and administering public health precautions against COVID-19.
The university may use faculty and staff vaccination information to manage incentives and/or excuse those who log their status from some precautionary measures.
Faculty, staff and student employees (myHR)
We recommend that you take a new scan or photo of their verification document and upload the new image via myHR, or follow the specific instructions they receive in your incomplete email.
We recommend students take a new scan or photo of your verification document, log in to myZou, and upload their new image. Students will receive an email confirmation every time they upload a document.
On Dec. 7, 2021, a federal court issued an order that blocks the federal government from enforcing the federal vaccine mandate for federal contractors for the time being.
As a result, the university is suspending the requirement for faculty, staff and student employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved exemption. Employees are no longer required to show documentation of vaccination or apply for an exemption at this time.
