The vaccine is our shot to keep our campus and community safe.
Vaccination Policy
Due to a federal court order which blocks the federal government from enforcing a vaccination mandate for federal contractors, the University of Missouri System has suspended policy HR-703, which required certain employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • If you have already uploaded documentation of your vaccination, you do not need to take any further action. Your documentation will remain on file.
  • If you requested an exemption, you do not need to take any further action. We will suspend the processing of your request and keep it pending. If the vaccination requirements come back into effect at some point in the future, your exemption request will be processed at that time.
  • If you have not uploaded documentation or requested an exemption, we continue to encourage you to get vaccinated to protect your health and the health of our university community. You can voluntarily upload your vaccination documentation through myHR (

In the event the federal contractor vaccination mandate comes back into effect, UM System will update employees of changes to the policy.

The vaccination requirements implemented in August 2021 for University of Missouri Health System employees and for UMKC faculty, staff and students who have direct patient contact in health care settings, remain in effect.
