Mayor de Blasio, Commissioner Chokshi and Chancellor Porter made an important announcement about health and safety requirements for all DOE employees to ensure the DOE is doing all they can to keep school communities and colleagues safe. Effective September 27, all DOE employees are required to provide proof that they have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Employees who have one dose but who are not fully vaccinated by September 27 will still be expected to update their records when fully vaccinated.
The DOE encourages all staff who have not completed their COVID-19 vaccination to do so as soon as possible. More information about locations where New Yorkers can receive a vaccine for COVID-19 can be found at vaccinefinder.nyc.gov or call 877-VAX-4-NYC.
In order to provide the DOE your vaccination status DOE employees are asked to please upload proof of vaccination through the DOE’s Vaccination portal, here: https://vaccine.schools.nyc/.
For more information and updates, visit the COVID-19 Vaccination Portal page on the DOE InfoHub.
Proof of vaccination can be an image of the vaccination card, NYS Excelsior Pass, or other government record. Submitting this information will support New York City’s pandemic response and recovery efforts, and help ensure that the DOE is a safe place to work for all employees.
