Faculty and Staff Vaccination Requirement

Princeton University will require 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) and/or World Health Organization. The requirement applies to employees and others routinely working on campus or in property occupied by the University.

All employees must have updated VacStatus by July 1, 2021.  Employees who have not updated VacStatus will lose access to campus buildings and may face disciplinary action.

Employees who are not yet vaccinated, and who have not been granted a religious or medical accommodation, must receive the final dose of their chosen vaccine no later than August 1, 2021.  Otherwise, they must speak with HR or DOF and their managers to determine if a period of paid leave (using their own accrued time) or unpaid leave is operationally feasible, after which they must be fully vaccinated to return to the workplace.
