Federal Employee Vaccination Requirement 

In accordance with Executive Order 14043, the NRO has established procedures to verify NRO employees' COVID-19 vaccination status by November 22, 2021. To meet this deadline, all current Federal employees must receive their Johnson & Johnson vaccine or their second Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination dose by November 8, 2021. In limited circumstances, a reasonable accommodation for medical or religious reasons may be granted as legally required.

Individuals who start their government service after November 22, 2021, need to be fully vaccinated prior to their scheduled start date, except in limited circumstances where a reasonable accommodation for medical or religious reasons is legally required.  Employees will be considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after they have received the requisite number of doses of a COVID-19 vaccine approved or authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or that has been listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization. For Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or AstraZeneca/Oxford, that is two weeks after an employee has received the second dose in a two-dose series. For Johnson and Johnson (J&J)/Janssen, that is two weeks after an employee has received a single-dose.

New employees will be required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, and must certify under penalty of perjury that the documentation you submit is true and correct on their start date in order to access NRO facilities. For urgent, mission critical hiring needs, unvaccinated new hires need to be vaccinated within 60 days of their start date and follow safety protocols for not fully vaccinated individuals until they are fully vaccinated.
