Additional Details for Reporting Vaccines
Access the University Health Services website where you will find instructions on how to register with Med+Proctor, the company managing our COVID-19 vaccine registration. Once you register with Med+Proctor, you can upload your vaccine information. There is no charge to use this site. Med+Proctor will offer you the chance to buy a lifetime membership to its service for $10. However, you do not have to purchase this service in order to register and upload your vaccine information.
Submitting a photo of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card is a valid method to confirm your vaccination status. Med+Proctor will accept your card image as supporting documentation without issue. Your card does not need to be signed by a clinician to be accepted. If you do not have a photo of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, you can use the Med+Proctor immunization certificate to submit information about your vaccination status. The immunization certificate needs to be signed by a clinician to be accepted if you do not include a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.
All Kent State students who are vaccinated and who have registered their vaccine will be eligible to win prizes in twice-weekly drawings through Oct. 31. That means you could win free tuition for a semester, free room and board for a semester or a kayaking trip with you and your closest friends. Other prizes to be awarded include free Homecoming concert tickets, Beats headphones and Apple Watches.
As of Aug. 27, 2021, Kent State issued a COVID-19 vaccine requirement. By Dec. 20, 2021, all faculty and non-represented staff are required to be fully vaccinated. Once vaccinated, employees are required to submit their vaccination status. Until that time we are collecting as much information as we can to determine the percentage of employees who are either fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or not vaccinated at all. Filling out the online form and uploading your vaccine card or letter signed by a physician is required by faculty per the terms of the memorandum of understanding added to their collective bargaining agreement in October. Faculty who do not get vaccinated by Nov. 1, also are required to file for an exemption or submit to weekly testing, per the memorandum.
