Are HIPAA notifications required before uploading vaccination cards?

HIPAA rules typically do not apply to employers or employment records. It only applies to HIPAA-covered entities (e.g. health care providers, a health plan or a health care clearinghouse). HIPAA notifications are therefore not required and if the university asks an employee to provide proof of vaccination, that is not a HIPAA violation.
