MEDICAL & NON-MEDICAL EXEMPTIONS

Medical Exemptions

  • All medical exemptions require a physician’s signature
  • Acceptable medical exemptions include:
    • Serious allergic reactions to one of the vaccine components;
    • An underlying medical condition that would put you at risk if you were to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Non-Medical Exemptions

  • Requests for non-medical exemption must include proof of completion of a  COVID-19 vaccine educational module.

Links to the medical exemption form and the educational module for non-medical exemptions will be provided to you once you begin the COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement Form.

TEMPORARY FDA DEFERRAL

Until the Food and Drug Administration has fully approved at least one vaccine, a personal deferral is available. Once one or more of the vaccines receives full approval, the personal deferral will be discontinued, and you will be considered non-compliant until you provide updated requirement information. 

Submit a deferral on the COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement Form.
