Schedule Your COVID-19 Vaccine Now
All people living in the United States age 12 and older are eligible to schedule a vaccine appointment.
U.S.-based faculty and staff who choose not to participate in the vaccine database will be presumed to be non-vaccinated and must comply with COVID-19 mitigation protocols, including wearing facial coverings, completing the daily self-assessment and participating in Tartan Testing each week they will be on campus. CMU’s global locations will communicate vaccine and mitigation requirements to their faculty and staff separately, consistent with their regional contexts.

What If I Get Sick?
Our first priority is your safety and well-being. Learn what to do if you experience symptoms on the Symptoms & Reporting page.
Mental Health and Support
CMU provides resources to help academic and staff employees and eligible dependents cope with these types of life events through the Guidance Resources Employee Assistance Program (EAP). You may also call the EAP line directly at 1-844-744-1370. The EAP provides confidential, short-term counseling at no cost to the employee.
If you know a student who needs help, or a student comes to you, we encourage you to point them to Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS). CaPS counselors are available at any time, day or night, at 412-268-2922.
Medical Requests for Accommodations
Consistent with CMU’s commitment to maintain the health, safety and welfare of its faculty and staff, the university will provide a reasonable accommodation to eligible faculty and staff who, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, require workplace accommodations to enable them to perform the essential functions of their job, unless doing so would create an undue hardship.
Faculty and staff who seek workplace accommodations should submit a request through the Office of Disability Services.
