Academic COVID Vaccine Guidelines

Academic COVID Vaccine Guidelines

All Academic Division employees who follow SEC-045 (faculty and staff, wage and temp workers, part-time and full-time), including those working remotely, are strongly encouraged to receive their primary series of COVID-19 vaccine and a booster dose when eligible per CDC recommendation.


Following UVA’s recent booster deadline, Governor Glenn Youngkin signed an Executive Directive prohibiting state agencies, including institutions of higher education, from requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment. The small number of employees and faculty who did not comply with the University vaccination deadlines will not face sanctions. We will continue to strongly encourage anyone who has not done so already to get vaccinated or boosted as soon as possible. We will also continue to offer testing resources for all community members, particularly unvaccinated people who have a higher risk of becoming seriously ill with COVID-19 and spreading the disease to others.
