What do I upload for COVID vaccine/booster vaccine proof?
If you received your vaccine or booster vaccine at a Johns Hopkins location, your documentation is automatically in the system. You do not need to do anything further.
If you received your COVID vaccine or booster vaccine elsewhere, your documentation can be a photo of your CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card, a pharmacy receipt, or a document from an official source such as your health care provider. Please ensure the following criteria are met:
- Full name is present on vaccine documentation
- All dates of vaccine are legible
- All pages are present
- Documentation is readable
- If pharmacy receipt, the vaccine must clearly be listed
- If the document is in a language other than English, it must include an English translation
- The vaccine indicated on the document is an acceptable vaccine per JH guidelines
There was a problem verifying my COVID vaccine proof and I have a red Campus Pass in Prodensity. What do I do now?
You will receive an email with details regarding the problem with your submission. Your Campus Pass will remain red until you review and resubmit vaccine proof in VMS. The daily COVID Health Check is required per Johns Hopkins policy, regardless of vaccination status.
If I am not eligible for the booster vaccine by the February 1 deadline, what do I do?
If you are not yet eligible for a booster as of Feb. 1, you are required to receive a booster when you become eligible and no more than six months after a second shot of Pfizer or Moderna, six months after a J&J booster, or two months after receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. You will have two weeks after the booster deadline recognized by the university to get a booster and upload your documentation to the Vaccine Management System.
Do I have to request an exception for the booster if I have an approved exception for the COVID vaccine?
If you have an approved medical or religious exemption to the COVID vaccine, it carries over to the booster requirement. You do not need to apply again.
