Vaccination

Bradley University students, faculty and staff must be either fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have an approved exemption from the vaccine.

New employees must be fully vaccinated by their first day of work or submit a negative test result dated no more than three days before their first day of work, with subsequent weekly testing as described below until fully vaccinated.

Students studying remotely and employees working remotely who are not present on campus are not covered by this policy.

Compliance

Students and employees not complying with this policy will not be allowed on campus. Employees will be placed on unpaid leave until their employment status is determined by the university and may include termination of employment. Failure to comply with the provisions of this policy, including violations of requirements for those who have not been vaccinated (i.e., those who receive a medical or religious exemption), may lead to discipline, up to and including dismissal from the university.

Procedures

Students, faculty and staff must submit proof of vaccination as outlined in the university policy. Individuals who have an approved vaccination exemption must comply with the testing protocols and other protective measures required by the university or other governing bodies. Individuals seeking an exemption from the vaccine requirement must apply for an appropriate exemption.

Vaccination

COVID-19 vaccinations are free, whether an individual has health insurance or not. While a provider may bill a patient’s health insurance for administering the vaccine, there is usually no out-of-pocket cost to an individual. Find a vaccination site near you.

All employees will be paid for time off to receive vaccinations, including boosters, and recover from vaccine-related side effects. Employees must work with their managers to schedule necessary time off.

Official documentation of vaccination status must be provided and include the following:

  • The type of vaccine administered.
  • The date(s) of administration.
  • The name of the health care professional or clinic site administering the vaccine.
