Health and Safety Information

Vaccination provides the best protection against COVID-19 and provides the best chance for us to return to the daily activities that are important in a college community.

The College is requiring that all employees, as well as all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in on-campus classes and/or conducting research in on-campus labs, whether they live on campus or off, receive a primary series of COVID-19 vaccination as well as a booster dose.

Booster Shots

The College is requiring employees and students to obtain a booster shot if they are eligible. Booster shot eligibility information can be found on the CDC's website here

You are eligible if you completed a 2-dose vaccine series (e.g., Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna, etc.) five or more months ago or received a Johnson & Johnson/Janssen single-dose vaccine two or more months ago. 

If you are already eligible, we encourage you to book your booster appointment as soon as you can to ensure you get an appointment and to maximize your protection.

If you would like to check your eligibility date, here is a link to a helpful booster calculator from the Tennessee Department of Public Health. The calculator lets you enter your vaccine information and will tell you when you can get your booster.

Booster Vaccine after COVID: For anyone who has tested positive and had not already received a COVID vaccine booster, we are asking that you schedule a booster dose within 30 days of your positive test if possible. 

Plan ahead and schedule your booster appointment so that you receive your vaccine as soon as possible, when you are eligible. Vaccines are available at local pharmacies and other vaccination locations in the community. If you are currently eligible or will be soon, do not delay scheduling your booster.

Medical or Religious Exemptions

If a qualified exemption has precluded you from vaccination in the past, please discuss with your medical or spiritual advisor if vaccination is right for you at this time.  All vaccination exemption documentation is valid for one academic year.

  • If you have already received an exemption from last semester, you do not have to re-apply for an exemption.
  • If you are a new student or employee you are eligible to apply for an exemption. New students should contact Student Health Services at x1307. New Employees should contact Human Resources via x1608.
  • Information for community members who are Catholic.  The College has received a number of inquiries from members of the community who are Catholic concerning the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines. Both the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (in conjunction with the Pontifical Academy for Life) and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have stated that there is no moral objection preventing anyone from receiving a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
