Employee Vaccination Policy
In accordance with Skidmore College’s commitment to the health and safety of its community members and in order to prevent or significantly reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the College and protect all members of the College community from infection, all faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated as a condition of employment unless exempted from this requirement as a reasonable accommodation of a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief.
For the purposes of this policy, “vaccinated” means two weeks have passed since your final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, and, effective Jan. 24, 2022, receipt of a booster shot within 30 days of becoming eligible for a booster.
The COVID-19 Vaccination Submission Form has been updated for employees to submit proof of their booster vaccination. Please complete this form as soon as possible and no later than Jan. 24.
Employees in need of an exemption from this policy due to a medical reason, or because of a sincerely held religious belief, should contact Human Resources. When requested, the College will provide an exemption/reasonable accommodation for any known medical condition or disability, or sincerely held religious belief or practice, of a qualified individual which prevents an employee from receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, provided the requested accommodation is reasonable and does not create an undue hardship for the College or pose a direct threat to the health and/or safety of others in the workplace, educational environment and/or to the requesting employee.
