Mandatory Vaccination Update

Brad WalchukUncategorized

As you may have read via MacDailyNews or in an email sent by McMaster:

McMaster’s Vaccination Policy requires that all faculty and staff upload their proof of vaccination by October 17th, 2021 at 11:59pm. This requirement applies to everyone, including those who may currently be working remotely. After this date, if you have not provided proof of vaccination or received an approved human rights exemption, you will not be permitted to attend McMaster’s campus or any McMaster-affiliated location. 

If you have submitted a request for exemption from vaccination due to a protected human rights ground, please disregard this message and thank you for your patience. These requests are being thoroughly and confidentially reviewed in the sequence in which they were received. The University will provide further communication to you as soon as possible.

It is critically important to upload your documentation into MacCheckWe encourage you to do this as soon as possible and well in advance of the October 17th deadline.  

The Vaccination Validation Team (part of Human Resources) will continue to review vaccination receipts. Once you have uploaded your information, the status will read as ‘pending’ until your submission is reviewed and validated.  Please do not worry about this pending status – it will not prevent you from receiving clearance to attend a McMaster site when you complete the Daily Check In on MacCheck. The proof of vaccination reviews are being completed as quickly as possible.

If you have questions or require assistance, please let us know.
