I received a COVID-19 vaccine. Do I still have to abide by UMB COVID-19 testing protocols?

You may submit proof of being fully vaccinated in place of a negative COVID-19 test result. Please upload to SAFE (or Castle Branch).

To be considered fully vaccinated for this round of testing, you must have received the second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccine or the single dose of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine by March 20, 2021. This is required because you are not considered fully vaccinated until it has been more than two weeks since you received either the second shot of a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or the one shot of the single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).

Vaccinated students, faculty, or staff who are experiencing COVID-like symptoms or who believe that they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive should immediately contact the UMB COVID-19 Hotline at 800-701-9863.
