Subject: Update on the Vaccine Requirement for All Faculty and Staff
Stevens is requiring that all full-time and part-time employees, who will work remotely or on campus for the Fall 2021 term, must be vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized or granted emergency use authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) not later than August 1, 2021.
Full-time and part-time employees include but are not limited to:
- Full-time staff
- Part-time staff
Stevens will accept COVID-19 vaccines approved by the FDA or World Health Organization (“WHO”). As of today, June 22, 2021, the approved vaccine lists include vaccines manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Janssen/J&J, AstraZeneca/Oxford/Covishield, Sinopharm (Beijing), and Sinovac-CoronaVac (Beijing). Please continue to monitor these lists regularly as vaccination approvals may change.
Limited exemptions from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement will be considered for medical and religious reasons. Click here for instructions on how to submit an exemption request.
All faculty and staff who have received all doses of the COVID-19 vaccine should promptly submit evidence of the vaccination (such as a vaccination card), including the vaccination date(s) and vaccine name, through Workday. Employee instructions on how to submit your documents are available online. Stevens will keep individuals’ vaccination information confidential.
As previously communicated, Stevens will not be able to accommodate employees who are not fully vaccinated or have not been granted a medical/religious exemption. Employees must inform the Division of Human Resources by email to [email protected] if they do not plan on seeking an exemption or taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
