Are employees required to receive a booster shot?

Vaccine guidance for employees

  • Booster recommendations for all faculty and staff. While vaccinations are not mandated for employees, UB officials and infectious disease experts strongly urge all faculty and staff to get fully vaccinated, which now includes getting a booster as soon as medically eligible. Vaccines and boosters are the most effective defense against the coronavirus.
  • Surveillance testing requirement. State employees who do not get vaccinated will be required to be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. 
  • Human Resources has provided guidance to employees on how to provide proof of vaccination.
