Proof of Vaccination

Who is considered fully vaccinated?

Fully Vaccinated means a status that an individual achieves 14 days after they have received the recommended number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine approved by Health Canada or the World Health Organization, and requires the individual to maintain the recommended number and type of vaccine doses as updated and required by Health Canada thereafter.

UNVACCINATED OR PARTIALLY VACCINATED PAST NOVEMBER 1

Students with in-person classes or activities this fall who did not receive a first dose of vaccine by September 20 currently do not meet the U of A’s vaccination requirements. Please contact dosdean@ualberta.ca as soon as possible for further information.

Faculty or staff members with in-person work or activities this fall who did not receive a first dose of vaccine by September 20 currently do not meet the U of A’s vaccination requirements. Please notify your supervisor as soon as possible for further information.

U of A vaccination requirement exemptions are granted to students, faculty and staff on medical or other human rights-based grounds only. Learn more about exemptions and accommodations »

Verification

Records or proof of vaccination and exemption submissions will be regularly audited to ensure that documents submitted are valid, accurate and not fraudulent. 

Any individual who submits fraudulent proof of vaccination, fraudulent documentation supporting an accommodation, a fraudulent COVID-19 test result or any other fraudulent or misleading information regarding any issue arising under the U of A Vaccination Directive will result in discipline under the Code of Student Behaviour or relevant Collective Agreement or be trespassed from university properties.

Failure to provide proof

After October 4, the Office of the Dean of Students will start reaching out to students who have not yet met the requirements of the Vaccination Directive; and, HR Service Partners will start following up with supervisors regarding employees who have not yet met the requirements of the Vaccination Directive. If you have not submitted your proof of vaccination or exemption by October 4, you will not be permitted on U of A campuses or properties until you do so.
