As the pandemic and mitigation strategies continue to evolve, it is important that we have the most timely and accurate information possible to inform our decisions, including the mask mandate. That means we need to update our June data about the percentage of our campus that is vaccinated. We also ask that you participate in a second survey to explore attitudes about the COVID vaccine among those who are vaccinated and those who are not. We hope that every member of our campus community will complete both surveys.
To share your vaccination status, please go to https://forms.gle/bcNV6M9BXM9RD3SP7. When the Google login is presented, you will need to enter your Truman email address to complete the survey. The site is available now through the close of business on September 10.
There are only two questions on the first survey:
- Are you fully vaccinated for COVID-19?
- If you answered “no”, have you begun the vaccination process?
If you answer “yes” to either of the questions, you will be asked to upload an image of your vaccination card so we can have the most accurate information about verification status. Once Human Resources verifies vaccination status from the card image, the card image will be deleted. The image will be deleted no later than September 17. If you do not wish to upload an image of your vaccination card, you may go to Human Resources (101 McClain Hall) to share your status from 8am-5pm, Monday – Friday. Please be sure to bring your vaccination card with you.
Vaccination status is being collected to have knowledge about the campus as a whole. To be considered to be fully vaccinated or in the process of being vaccinated, you must upload an image of your card or present it to the staff in Human Resources. You will not be contacted about your individual vaccination status.
To participate in the second survey, please go to https://survey.truman.edu/surveys/2b528d2a-5103-46a7-a5ba-27c17dda33b3. This eight question survey is sponsored by Truman’s Faculty Senate COVID Working Group, and faculty and staff are encouraged to share their thoughts.
The survey asks about personal health and attitude information; data are collected anonymously and can only be accessed by the Faculty Senate COVID Working Group. Aggregated results will be shared with the campus. The purpose of the survey is to gather information that may inform strategies to promote a healthy and thriving campus.
Truman is successfully navigating the pandemic because we consistently step up to keep each other safe and well. Sharing your vaccination status and completing the second survey are quick and easy ways to continue this commitment to one another. Thank you in advance for providing this essential information.
