COVID Vaccine Requirement Key Dates, Deadlines and Information

Since announcing the COVID-19 vaccine requirement on July 8, we have held several informational forums to help answer questions and share information about the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. If you still have questions please read the Vaccine Requirement Q & A which is updated weekly with new questions, or make plans to attend a forum in the near future (see Calendar of Events on SharePoint).
