Please note the university’s mandatory testing requirements for faculty, staff and students are still in place even for individuals who are fully vaccinated. A verified Vaccination Record Card will not be used to replace mandatory COVID-19 testing until the upcoming Fall 2021 semester.

If you are already fully vaccinated against COVID-19, we encourage you to upload your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to the MyMcKinley Portal to be ready for the Fall 2021 semester. See more information here.

We encourage members of the university community to be vaccinated if and when they are able to do so. We also acknowledge that some individuals have health conditions or other reasons why they cannot be vaccinated. See here for more guidance about vaccination status.

The distribution of a vaccine is welcome news, but we must continue to be as diligent as ever in safety precautions, including participating in regular COVID-19 testing, wearing face coverings, practicing social distancing, washing hands frequently and avoiding large gatherings.

Thank you in advance for your understanding as we work through this next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and rely on the guidance of our public health leaders to make the best decisions for our community.
