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.

Local Vaccination Information
Virginia’s vaccination site is now open
Please note that the COVID-19 Vaccination registration website for the state of Virginia is now active.
Currently, employees of IHEs will be in the preregistration phase as we remain in Category 1C. We continue to work with and communicate with local health care officials each week on vaccine availability.
Note that when asking about employment status in the preregistration form, there is a specific place to click “Institutions of Higher Education Faculty or Staff.” Clicking this is important as it will dictate to the system that your preregistration belongs in Category 1C.<
