UA employees, including student employees, may use the UA Vaccine Management Portal to voluntarily report vaccination status or request a disability/medical or religious exemption. Student employees who previously uploaded vaccination documents to receive an incentive should still complete this process.

On Dec. 7, 2021, a federal court issued a nationwide order to suspend the vaccine mandate for employees of federal contractors. This follows a Nov. 30 federal court order to suspend the CMS vaccine mandate for health care workers. As a result, UA’s vaccine requirement is suspended. At this time, UA will not be required to take action regarding unvaccinated employees on Jan. 4, 2022. Because the ultimate outcome of legal challenges is not decided, we will continue to closely monitor legal developments and provide guidance to employees.
