A Message to the Penn Community
March 1, 2022
Thank you to everyone who has uploaded their booster information; we are pleased to report that, as of today, more than 60% of our community has reported having their third COVID shot, including 73% of faculty, staff, and postdocs. In an effort to ensure that everyone meets this requirement, the University is extending the deadline to March 14 for those who are eligible for a booster shot to upload their information.
Beginning March 14, those who have not yet uploaded their information, or are not yet booster-eligible, will be required to undergo screening testing twice each week. This requirement will be lifted once the information is uploaded. Faculty and staff who are not boosted will not be eligible for COVID pay should they become ill. CPUP physicians and Health System employees should follow Health System guidelines.
As a reminder, all students must upload their booster vaccine information into their Student Health Portal. All faculty, staff, and postdocs should upload vaccination information in Workday.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership as we work together to keep our campus safe and healthy.
Beth Winkelstein, Interim Provost
Craig Carnaroli, Senior Executive Vice President
J. Larry Jameson, Executive Vice President for the Health System
