Federal Vaccine Mandate
While a federal contractor vaccination mandate was instituted in 2021, the federal government is currently not enforcing that mandate and its associated guidance. Oklahoma State University has, consistent with applicable law, paused the vaccination mandate. Please be aware the federal government may enforce this mandate later, which would require all employees to be fully vaccinated or receive an approved exemption as a condition of employment.
