All Canisius full and part-time faculty and staff were required to provide the college with proof that they are fully vaccinated by November 22, 2021. The policy governing the vaccine mandate is available here. The college utilized a third-party electronic health records provider, Medicat, for the secure upload, maintenance, and reporting of vaccination records for employees. Medicat specializes in health record compliance for colleges and universities and currently supports the college’s student health records.
In accord with federal standards, medical and religious exemptions to the vaccine requirement were considered. Anyone granted a medical or religious exemption must commit to weekly testing and submit their results.
Covid vaccinations are free and readily available at pharmacies and clinics across the region. Click here for a list of vaccination sites. Vaccinations will not be available to faculty or staff through Canisius’ Student Health Center.
