Vaccine Requirements When Working Off-Campus and in Partner Facilities

On Aug. 23, 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine under its normal approval process. This approval will inevitably impact vaccination requirements for universities, businesses and other institutions we partner with.

When our University-related work requires us to travel off-campus and into our partner facilities that are not University of Minnesota-owned, University faculty, staff and students must comply with University of Minnesota requirements AND any additional vaccine requirements for the partner facility, e.g., M Health Fairview hospitals and clinics, UMP clinics, community research sites, and other university campuses.

We strongly encourage faculty, staff and students to contact their advisor, on-site supervisor or leader, or the facility itself to obtain documentation on the current vaccination requirements prior to arrival at the facility. This will help ensure the work or educational opportunity can advance as planned.
