Vaccination is required for all VCU faculty and staff  

All VCU faculty and staff must be vaccinated or have a VCU-approved religious or medical exemption from vaccination. New hires are required to report COVID-19 vaccination or, if applicable, submit requests for medical or religious exemptions within the first three days of employment; this is completed as part of their onboarding process. New hires who are dually employed with VCU Health System must report to both VCU and VCU Health. If you have questions about how to submit your vaccination documentation or apply for a medical or religious exemption, speak with your HR Professional

Requests for an exemption
Employees whose exemption requests are approved or under review participate in weekly asymptomatic surveillance testing; they will receive an email from with instructions on how to participate in required testing.
