Procedure for Proof of Vaccination

On July 28, 2021, we announced Denver Health’s Mandatory Vaccine Policy, which requires all Denver Health employees, students, residents, volunteers and contractors to be vaccinated for COVID-19 by November 1, 2021. This includes those who are currently working from home or on a hybrid work from home plan. This internal announcement preceded both a City and State announcement last week for employers, like Denver Health, to have a fully vaccinated workforce. Full vaccination is either one dose of the J&J (Jansen) vaccine, or two shots of either mRNA vaccine, Moderna or Pfizer.

Below you will see important next steps with both instructions and deadlines on how to verify your vaccination status with Denver Health, sign-up for a vaccine, or submit a medical/and or religious exemption/declination.

Proof of Vaccination: All employees must submit proof of vaccination, through our COVID-19 Tracker by November 1. This includes those who get their vaccination offsite, those who request a medical or religious exemption, and those who work from home.

Submission of Exemption/Declination: Exemptions will only be given for medical contraindications or a religious belief that precludes this vaccination. As a reminder, filing for an exemption/declination does not guarantee approval. Your exemption will be reviewed by a panel and a decision will be determined. To file an exemption please fill out this form by October 15.

Sign up for a COVID-19 Vaccine: Employees who do not receive an approved exemption will be asked to sign up for a COVID-19 vaccination. You can sign up online here, or by calling 303-436-7000. If you choose to get vaccinated outside of the Denver Health system, you can submit proof of vaccination through the COVID-19 Tracker by November 1.
