How will I provide documentation of compliance with the COVID-19 vaccine requirement?

Deadlines for OSU students and employees (including student workers) are different.

Students

Students who work on, study at or visit a campus were required to show proof of being vaccinated by uploading their COVID-19 vaccine documentation (e.g., the CDC card) into their patient portal by Sept. 15, 2021 (the same process used for other required vaccinations at OSU). Students can access their patient portal on the Student Health Services website.

Students who have lost their COVID vaccination card can call the Student Health Services Immunization office for help at 541-737-7573. Students seeking an approved medical or non-medical exception must complete an official document and review an educational module.

Employees

Employees — including student-employees — are required to submit proof of vaccination by Jan. 4, 2022. OSU employees must either upload documentation of full vaccination against COVID-19 to the patient portal by this date or pursue a religious or medical exemption. Instructions on how to upload proof of vaccination or pursue a religious or medical exemption can be found on the Student Health Services website.

If an employee wishes to pursue a religious or medical exemption, they must do so as soon as possible to be ready for the  Jan. 4, 2022 deadline. Please note that with an approved or pending exemption, employees are required to test weekly for COVID-19 if actively working on the Corvallis or Cascades campus prior to and after the Jan. 4, 2022 deadline.  Those awaiting approval or otherwise not vaccinated are required to test weekly for COVID-19 if actively working on the Corvallis or Cascades campus.

To pursue a medical exemption, an employee must fill out the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) form and have it signed by a licensed medical professional prior to uploading it to the employee’s patient portal. OSU’s Occupational Health department will review and communicate whether or not the request is approved.

Religious exemptions may be pursued through OSU’s Office of Equal Opportunity Access (EOA) via this form. The EOA will review the detailed information provided by employees who hold sincere religious beliefs that prevent them from getting vaccinated and communicate whether or not the request is approved.
