Vaccination Guidelines for Employees
Dear Molloy Community,
The health and safety of the Molloy community remains our top priority as we plan for the full return of students and employees to our locations this fall. As I have previously stated, we continue to evaluate and update our health plans based on the guidance from local and state Department of Health officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
At this time Molloy University is requiring that all students and employees receive the primary vaccination series for Covid-19. Boosters are strongly recommended.
If you have a valid medical or religious exemption, you may submit a request for an exemption in accordance with the University’s Religious and Medical Exemptions from COVID-19 Vaccine Policy. Please note that requesting an exemption does not guarantee that an exemption will be granted. Exemption forms are available in the Molloy Health Portal in the Related Links tab.
If you have begun the vaccination series, you may request a temporary waiver of the vaccination requirements while you complete the vaccination series. Waiver applications are also available in the Molloy Health Portal in the Related Links tab.
Unvaccinated individuals with approved medical and religious exemptions, or those who have been granted a temporary waiver, will be required to follow established health and safety protocols at Molloy. If you are not fully vaccinated and have not been granted either a medical or religious exemption or a temporary waiver, you will not be permitted on campus. Further information regarding possible consequences for non-compliance with the Policy can be found in the University ’s Religious and Medical Exemptions from COVID-19 Vaccine policy.
To continue employment at the University, employees must comply with the University 's vaccination requirement. If an employee fails to comply, they will be placed on a two-week unpaid notice period during which time they may reconsider their intent to continue employment at the University. If they begin the vaccination process during this period, they will be reinstated immediately. If the vaccination process is not within two weeks (ten business days) of receipt of notice of non-compliance, disciplinary proceedings will commence up to and including termination of employment.
To upload proof of vaccination, please access the Molloy Health Portal by clicking here:

Uploaded of proofs of vaccination are confidentially stored in the Molloy Health Portal.
If you receive the vaccine during your scheduled work time, you are entitled to up to four hours of paid time off per vaccine injection. This paid time off is at your regular rate of pay and is in addition to any other leave to which you are entitled (i.e., sick, vacation and personal).
A FAQ page is available on the Molloy website.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our email address, email@example.com.
