The University of Washington requires students and personnel to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Under state regulations, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear masks while in all UW buildings and facilities.

Verify your vaccination status

Students and UW personnel are able to verify their vaccination status through the secure COVID-19 vaccination attestation forms linked below. You will be able to change your answers after submitting the form, such as if you declare an exemption and later decide to get vaccinated.

If you are planning to be vaccinated but have not yet received your last shot – either the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or the single dose of a one-dose vaccine – if you are a student, please wait until after your last shot before completing the form. Personnel should complete the form after they are fully vaccinated (two weeks after receiving the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or 2 weeks after receiving a one-dose vaccine).

Students

Students verify their vaccination status or claim an exemption through Hall Health. Students who are also employed by the University need to complete both the student and employee forms.

UW personnel

Employees verify their vaccination status or claim an exemption through Workday, with the exception of UW Medicine clinical personnel. If you do not have a Workday account, contact your supervisor for details on verifying your vaccination status.

Supervisors are required to verify vaccination status of personnel prior to lifting the face covering requirement for a fully vaccinated individual in the workplace. Supervisors can view a vaccine attestation report in Workday.

UW Medicine personnel

  • If you were already vaccinated with UW Medicine through the employee process, no action is needed.
  • If you were vaccinated through the UW Medicine patient process via Epic or at another healthcare location, you will need to submit proof of your vaccination using the link to our scheduling portal: c19-vaccine.uwmedicine.org.

All UW School of Medicine employees should complete the vaccine attestation process in Workday.

  • School of Medicine clinical employees should complete both the UW Medicine and Workday vaccination attestations.

Who is required to be vaccinated?

Beginning on July 7, 2021, we ask students and personnel to either verify that they have been fully vaccinated, or declare a medical, religious or philosophical exemption:

Exemptions

Exemptions will be granted for medical, religious or philosophical reasons, similar to the current tri-campus requirement for student vaccinations.

Deadlines

Personnel must submit the COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form indicating they are fully vaccinated or declaring an exemption:

  • As soon as possible after being fully vaccinated or have decided to declare an exemption and no later than September 10, 2021, whichever date is earliest.
  • Newly hired personnel are required to submit the form upon hire of they are fully vaccinated or declaring an exemption. If they are not yet fully vaccinated, the form is completed as soon as possible after being fully vaccinated.

Students must submit the Student COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form: 

  • As soon as  possible after the second dose of a 2-dose series or after a 1-dose vaccine, after they have decided to declare an exception, or by the start of autumn quarter on September 29, 2021, whichever date is earliest.
  • Students who are unable to get vaccinated until after arriving on campus may submit their form by November 5, 2021.
  • A hold will be placed on winter quarter registrations if the form has not been submitted by November 5, 2021.

Privacy

Vaccination attestation information is private and confidential:

  • Managers may not use, share or disclose this information for any purpose other than upholding compliance with state regulations.
  • Employees may not ask colleagues about their vaccination status.
  • Instructors may not ask their students about their vaccination status, nor will they have access to students’ records or be expected to verify students’ vaccination status. Instructors may broadly inform students that individuals who are not fully vaccinated need to wear face coverings in the classroom.
