Covid-19 vaccine submissions 
Per the recent injunction issued to halt enforcement of the vaccine requirement for federal contractors that was included in Executive Order 14042, USM employees are no longer required to submit proof of vaccination or request an exemption at this time.  Depending on the outcome of related court cases, it is possible that this information will be required again in the future. The vaccination submission portal will remain available through University HR’s website if employees choose to upload proof of vaccination.

All eligible students, faculty, and staff are strongly urged to get a COVID-19 vaccination and all applicable boosters, which are now widely available:
