Employees Receive Paid Time Off to Receive Vaccine(s)

Emory & Henry College supports our employees wishing to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Employees will receive three (3) hours of paid time off to receive the Covid vaccination (if receiving two vaccines you will get a total of 6 hours of paid time off). Non-exempt employees shall record their time off under Regular Hours Worked but must notify their supervisor ahead of time of their vaccine appointment time. Exempt employees should report their 3 or 6 hours of paid time off on their monthly leave report (note: this leave will not be charged against your sick or annual leave). Should an employee have an adverse reaction to receiving the vaccine, they should use their accrued sick leave hours.

Paid Leave for Dependent Children

As the Pfizer vaccine has now been approved for children aged 12 - 16, the College would like to assist our working parents with one hour of paid leave time in order to take their dependent children in this age range to a vaccine clinic in our area.

Employee Vaccination Records

If you have already received the COVID-19 vaccination (two doses of Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of Johnson & Johnson), please upload a copy of your vaccination card via this link to Human Resources. The only individual who will see this information is Tracy Peery, Director of Human Resources

Student Vaccination Records

As you begin to receive doses of the vaccine (or, in the case of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, your single dose), please fill out the following form. This is a confidential form and your information will only be shared with Student Health Services so that charts in the Student Health Center can be updated.
