Faculty and Staff Requirement

Faculty and Staff Vaccination Requirement

Princeton University requires that all faculty, staff, researchers, appointed visiting faculty and researchers, temporary employees, and independent contractors (i.e., individuals working alongside with or providing services to students and employees) receive and provide proof of having received a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO). The requirement applies to all employees regardless of work location, including partial or full remote work domestically, and others routinely working on campus or in property occupied by the University.

Employees should upload proof of vaccination to VacStatus.

Effective July 28, 2022, boosters are no longer mandated. However, all vaccinated students and employees are strongly encouraged to stay up to date with all CDC recommended COVID-19 booster doses when eligible. The University will continue to monitor the profile of the disease and the efficacy and availability of new boosters and may mandate boosters again in the future if public health circumstances and benefits warrant it.

For those applying for an accommodation, a small group led by University Health Services and including representatives from Human Resources, Office of the Dean of the Faculty, Disability Services, and Religious Life will review applications for accommodations

Employees can visit EHS’ website for the University’s official policy on vaccinations for employees.
