Required COVID Vaccination
- All University of Michigan students, faculty and staff are required to receive the COVID vaccine, with limited exceptions. This policy is effective immediately and subject to change as pandemic conditions evolve. For employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement shall apply. This policy does not apply to third party vendors, patients, guests, and visitors.
- Fully online/remote students will be exempt from the vaccination mandate with a signed attestation form. For more information visit the Vaccine Mandate Enforcement page.
- If your COVID-19 vaccination information has already been submitted and verified, you do not need to take any further action.
- Individuals must have completed, or received at least the initial dose of, the COVID-19 vaccination and submit their proof of vaccination information to U-M no later than August 30, 2021 via the forms below:
- To report that you have received all doses of a vaccine series, submit information via the COVID-19 Vaccination Completed form.
- To report that you have received one dose of a two-dose vaccine series, submit information via the Partial COVID-19 Vaccination form.

- You are required to get vaccinated even if you've already had COVID-19. Even if you have already recovered from COVID-19, it is possible that you could become infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 again. Studies have shown that vaccination provides a strong boost in protection in people who have recovered from COVID-19.
- Advisers for faculty and staff will be available by phone (734-764-8021, prompt 2) weekdays from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Students who have questions about the vaccine are invited to sign up for a Zoom discussion with a clinician or nurse using the University Health Service website weekdays from 8-10 a.m. Advisors will not engage in conversation about the policy.
If you lost your vaccination card - students, faculty and staff can access their personnel vaccine records by going to MCIR.org. Once on the MCIR site select the “public tab” on the left-hand side of the page. Set up an account and upload a government-approved document with a photo. Follow the prompts.
