COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Across UPMC, our guiding principle is to always prioritize the safety of our employees, patients, and members. UPMC believes that vaccination is important, helps protect all, and advocates that everyone who can be vaccinated should be vaccinated.

UPMC complies with all governmental requirements related to local, state, and federal COVID-19 vaccination for employment. The Jan. 13 Supreme Court of the United States decision that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services federal COVID-19 vaccine mandate will move forward requires UPMC to ensure employees either get vaccinated or receive a requested medical or religious exemption.

If you are not yet vaccinated, we urge you to get a vaccine now. You can schedule your COVID-19 vaccination through UPMC or visit a non-UPMC provider or UPMC Urgent Care location.

Proof of vaccination is not required upon hire; however, employees will be responsible for ensuring post-hire compliance by getting vaccinated or requesting a medical or religious exemption.

Security Alert

We are aware of scams targeting UPMC and other large companies that involve individuals posing as employees to illegitimately conduct interviews and extend false employment offers and payments to gain access to candidates' personal information. Please note that UPMC will not communicate with candidates through third-party email services like Gmail or Yahoo. While some interviews may take place via a video conferencing service, UPMC Talent Acquisition will not conduct interviews via Skype or Google Hangouts. UPMC will never ask for or disburse funds during the recruitment process. If you are hired into a role with a sign-on bonus or similar incentive, funds will be paid to you by UPMC after your start date.
