Please report your vaccination to HR

Message sent on April 21, 2021

Jen Lucas, Executive Director of Human Resources, invites the campus community to report their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing today to provide you with important vaccine information. It is wonderful to hear that so many faculty and staff have already been vaccinated or intend to be soon. We are certainly on the right path to achieving a high vaccination rate for our campus.

With your help, we would like to understand our vaccination progress as a campus community. In order to identify our progress, we encourage you to report your vaccination.

If you have been partially or fully vaccinated, please send the following information to

  • Employee Name
  • Manufacturer of Vaccine Received (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson)
  • Date of First Dose
  • Date of Second Dose (not applicable for Johnson & Johnson recipients)
  • Digital Copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination Card

If you have previously submitted vaccination details to Human Resources, please resubmit your information.

Vaccination records for all Gettysburg College employees will be kept confidential and managed by Human Resources. This information will help us to make critical decisions as we plan for the Fall 2021 semester.

We are also now in the process of polling students regarding their vaccination information, in addition to their interest in getting vaccinated if they have not already done so. More information will be forthcoming.

It is important to note that all faculty and staff, including those who have been vaccinated, will need to continue to follow our current health and safety protocols throughout the summer.

This includes:

  • Wearing a mask or face covering while on campus, whether inside or outside. There are a few limited exceptions that can be found on the College website.
  • Maintaining a 6-foot physical distance from others.
  • Cleaning and sanitizing your workspace daily.
  • Washing your hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds.

We will continue to monitor the situation throughout the summer months, and will be in touch if the guidelines change.

The best way to keep you, your family, our campus community, and our neighbors safe is to get your COVID-19 vaccination. This will also allow us to open our campus to the fullest extent for students, faculty, and staff as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your ongoing efforts to keep our community safe.

Jen Lucas
Executive Director of Human Resources
