COVID-19 Vaccination information.  Employees are required to submit information in RIT Employee Self-Service in Oracle regarding their COVID-19 vaccine status.  The COVID-19 Vaccine User Guide provides step by step instructions on how to enter the information.  Please note that this information will be used for aggregate information to get a sense for the overall vaccination rate for our campus community.  We do not yet know all of the ways in which we might be asked or required to use this information, however we are committed to transparency and advance notice if the university considers usage outside of these parameters.
