All students, faculty and staff (regular and temporary) on the three U-M campuses, including Michigan Medicine,  are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit their vaccination information. This includes all remote, regular and temporary employees.

As a reminder, U-M employees are eligible to use up to two hours of paid release time per vaccine dose. Additional information is available through U-M Human Resources.

Also, Michigan Medicine is making preparations to administer the COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11 years in anticipation of potential approval by the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Get more information and/or make an appointment here.

Booster Shots

At this time, the CDC states that people aged 18–64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may get a booster shot.
