As we continue to update our COVID-19 policies, protocols and practices for reopening the campus safely, strongly and successfully next month, we need to collect vaccination status data from students, faculty and staff so that we know the percentage of our campus community that has been vaccinated.
Students can upload their COVID-19 Vaccination Card to Medicat. Employees can email (hr [at] heidelberg.edu) or take their card to Human Resources.
Q: I am a student, how do I upload my card to Medicat?
1. Log in to your Medicat profile using your Heidelberg NetID user name and password. Your user name is the beginning portion of your ’Berg email address (e.g. jsmith1).
2. If you are using your NetID and password and you are having issues logging into Medicat, please go to OASIS and reset your your NetID password.
3. Once you are logged into Medicat, Look for the Upload tab (top right) or the Upload icon (far left). Upload a photo of your vaccination card.
Q: Am I required to provide my vaccination status and proof?
A: No, it’s entirely voluntary. But we strongly encourage everyone to complete the form so that we can get an accurate gauge of our herd immunity status.
Q: What are the consequences if I don’t participate?
A: We will be using the data to establish a vaccination percentage for our campus. Non-participation will be counted as not vaccinated, so that will make it more difficult to establish 75% vaccination for herd immunity.
Q: What if I received my vaccination on campus during the spring semester?
A: If you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine on campus during the spring semester, Stoner Health & Counseling Center has your record of being vaccinated, and you do not need to supply your card.
Q: Who will have access to my card and status?
A: Only the staff at Stoner Health & Counseling Center staff will have access to your information if you are a student. Only the staff in Human Resources will have access to your information if you are an employee.
Q: What if I have been vaccinated but I lost my card?
A: We recommend you check back with the clinic, pharmacy or hospital where you received your vaccination as they may be able to assist you.
Q: Is everyone on campus being asked to provide this information too?
A: Yes, the initiative to collect this information includes all faculty, staff, and students on campus.
Q: What if I have received just one of the recommended two doses of either the Pfizer of Moderna vaccine?
A: It’s so important for you to keep your appointment to get the second dose and complete the process. But if you have only received one dose, please upload your card.
Q: Is it too late to get my vaccine?
A: No, it’s not too late. If you have not yet received your vaccine, please do so as soon as possible and then report it using this form. It’s important to start the process now. Go to gettheshot.coronavirus.ohio.gov for a list of vaccination sites in your area and make your appointment directly from the state of Ohio Department of Health website.
