The University strongly encourages our community members to understand the science behind the vaccines and to get vaccinated as soon as possible. University members who provide proof of vaccination are exempt from certain mitigation measures, like mandatory testing and shelter-in-place periods.
Proof of Vaccination
The University of Pittsburgh requires every student, faculty and staff member to comply with certain mitigation measures unless they provide proof that they have been vaccinated. Community members will be assumed to be unvaccinated unless they provide evidence of being fully vaccinated. People are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
Please see options below for uploading COVID-19 vaccination cards below as proof of vaccination. The use of information regarding an individual’s vaccination status will be limited to the purposes of our virus control program and will be accessed only by appropriately authorized personnel.
Prior to starting the process, it is recommended that you photograph or scan the front of the card which includes your name, what COVID-19 vaccine you received and the date(s) you received the vaccine. Save this photo or file to your computer or smartphone to upload as described below.
Upload your proof of vaccination to your campus student health service.
- Pittsburgh students: upload through the Student Health Service portal. Read instructions.
Employees (faculty and staff on all campuses)
Upload your proof of vaccination online. You will be required to complete a short form with the type and dates of your vaccine and upload your photo or image.
Please note that it is generally easier to complete the form and upload a file from most smartphone devices as compared to desktop computers. Detailed instructions may be found in this Word document.
University members are not required to disclose their vaccinations status. However, members who fail to do so will be assumed to be unvaccinated and may be subject to certain mitigation measures, which will be implemented by health professionals on campus. All University members should refrain from asking others about their vaccination status as such dialogue could prompt disclosure of confidential medical information, which is protected under the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990).
