Effective October 1, 2021, the mandatory COVID-19 vaccine will become a condition of employment for Johns Hopkins Medicine personnel. Unvaccinated Johns Hopkins Medicine personnel are required to get the first dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, by October 1. The second Pfizer or Moderna dose must be received by November 1, 2021. In order to continue working or training at Johns Hopkins Medicine in any capacity, you must get the COVID-19 vaccine or receive an approved exception.
You must upload your vaccine documentation in the Johns Hopkins Vaccine Management System (VMS) by October 1, 2021.
Once you have logged into VMS, select Submit new vaccination.
Select COVID-19 – First Dose Only from the drop-down menu, click the box containing your name/information, and select Next.
Enter the details including vaccine manufacturer and date of first dose (if you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, please visit the Submit Your COVID Vaccine Documentation tutorial). Check the Verification and Accuracy box and press Submit.
Your documentation will be approved for up to 5 weeks (by which time you should receive your second dose). Your Prodensity Health Screen should reflect that your first dose has been administered.
Follow all testing and masking requirements as outlined by Johns Hopkins policies. The daily COVID Health Check is required per Johns Hopkins policy, regardless of vaccination status.
If you have any questions about your COVID vaccine documentation approval, please complete the VMS Help Form.
