UVA Health COVID Vaccine Enforcement Measures

UVA Health Managers - COVID Vaccine Enforcement Measures


UVA Health Tier 1 team members must have been fully compliant with the COVID-19 vaccination requirement per Occupational Health Screening and Maintenance Policy OCH-002 as of November 1, 2021. Those who were not compliant have been placed on suspension, and if they remained non-compliant, were terminated. UVA Health Managers of non-vaccinated Tier 1 team members are asked to continue to reach out to their direct reports, discuss the situation and their options, and start the suspension process as necessary.

  • 'Tier 1' refers to team members whose job-related activities require them to be present in Health System facilities at any time in a given calendar year.

Tier 2 team members are strongly encouraged, but not required, to complete primary vaccination and to submit documentation of completed primary vaccination. Tier 2 team members are not subject to enforcement measures.

  • 'Tier 2' refers to team members whose job-related activities do not require them to be present in Health System facilities at any time in a given calendar year. 

All team members (including Tier 1 and Tier 2) are strongly encouraged, but not required, to receive a booster dose of vaccine six (6) months after completing primary vaccination with Pfizer or Moderna vaccine OR two months after receiving J&J vaccination dose, and such other booster or additional doses as may be recommended by the CDC.
