Indiana to Require Vaccines, but Not Proof

June 3, 2021

Indiana University on Monday announced that it will keep a vaccine requirement announced last month to fight COVID-19, but it will drop a requirement that students and employees provide proof that they have been vaccinated.

"As part of the accelerated exemption process, those receiving the vaccine are no longer required to upload documentation," the university announcement said. "Instead, they can certify their status as part of a simple attestation form that will be available on June 2. Special incentives will be offered to those opting to upload documentation, as well. Details on the incentive program will be announced later this week."

The attorney general of Indiana last week said the university could not require people to submit proof that they have been vaccinated.
