Booster Shots

Currently, COVID-19 booster doses at University of Maryland Immediate Care (UMIC) flu clinic will only be administered to qualifying students per current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines (learn more). UMIC is not providing boosters to faculty and staff at this time.

Requirements

All on-campus University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) students, faculty, and staff, are expected to be “fully vaccinated” against COVID-19, effective Aug. 16, 2021.

An on-campus student includes any student whose courses or student-related activities are performed in whole or in part on the UMB campus, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, Donaldson Brown Riverfront Event Center, Columbus Center, UM BioPark, and other Maryland satellite offices. This also includes UMB students who attend the Universities at Shady Grove. Students engaged in clinical or field site activities should note that external sites may have stricter vaccine rules than UMB.

Students must provide proof of being fully vaccinated by Aug. 2, 2021 (or in the case of schools with later start dates, 14 days prior to the first day of classes).

An on-campus employee includes any employee whose job is performed in whole or in part on the UMB campus, Maryland Psychiatric Research Center, Donaldson Brown Riverfront Event Center, Columbus Center, UM BioPark, and other Maryland satellite offices. This also includes UMB employees whose jobs are performed at the Universities at Shady Grove.

UMB is committed to building an inclusive, equitable, and diverse campus community. UMB will provide medical and religious exemptions to this vaccination mandate, as provided for under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The UMB COVID-19 Management Portal allows faculty, staff, and students to:

  • Approve or deny Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) COVID-19 health information sharing
  • Upload vaccination dose information (if not using CRISP)
  • Request a vaccination exemption

Visit the UMB COVID-19 Vaccination Protocols for details of the UMB vaccination mandate, enforcement, and consequences.

Share Vaccination Information with CRISP

The Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) is the state of Maryland’s designated electronic health record system. UMB’s agreement with CRISP to directly release student COVID-19 test data (with student permission) also includes collection of COVID-19 vaccination history, with the employee’s consent.

The information will be used for public health purposes to help make decisions about preventive measures and identify members of the UMB community at risk of infection from exposure to COVID-19.

The CRISP authorization form can be accessed in the UMB COVID-19 Management Portal. This will populate the form with your name and email address. Your authorization via this form will permit CRISP to share your COVID-19 vaccination history with school leaders, department managers, and the occupational/student health clinical team. Only the clinical team will receive your COVID-19 test results.

CRISP will pull information from connected providers mainly in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

The portal will detect your dosage and testing information overnight from the date you received your vaccination dose or COVID-19 test result.

Permitting this sharing of information reduces “form fatigue” by eliminating the need to disclose your latest Maryland test results and Maryland vaccination records and will be convenient if booster shots are issued in the future for COVID-19 variants. 

One exception is the University of Maryland School of Nursing, whose students must upload COVID-19 vaccination records to CastleBranch because the school needs all student immunizations in one place for clinical placement purposes.
