All faculty and staff at seven Penn State campuses where work is being conducted on federal contracts must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and share proof of their vaccination with the University by Dec. 8, according to a recent executive order from President Joe Biden. The vaccination requirement applies to employees who perform work at or with the following campuses: Altoona, Behrend, Brandywine, DuBois, Fayette, Harrisburg and University Park.

Faculty, staff and World Campus students who are employed by the University need to upload their proof of vaccination into the University’s Salesforce Health Cloud, a secure online platform for collecting health data. These individuals can also check to see if they have already uploaded proof of vaccination using Salesforce Health Cloud.

Students on wage payroll or graduate assistantships need to upload their proof of vaccination through myUHS. Instructions can be found on the University Health Services (UHS) website.

Individuals who have already shared their proof of vaccination with the University by uploading an image of their vaccine card do not need to take any action.

Accepted forms of proof of vaccination include:

  • A copy of the record of immunization from a health care provider or pharmacy;
  • A copy of the COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention;
  • A copy of medical records documenting the vaccination;
  • A copy of immunization records from a public health or state immunization information system; or
  • A copy of any other official documentation verifying vaccination with information on the vaccine name, date(s) of administration, and the name of health care professional or clinic site administering vaccine.

Individuals are permitted to provide a digital copy of such records, including, for example, a digital photograph, scanned image or PDF.
