University of Tennessee Enforcing Vaccine Mandate for Employees Connected to Federal Contracts


The University of Tennessee said it is enforcing a mandate that will require employees who do work connected to federal contracts across the system to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by December 8. UT President Randy Boyd sent a letter to employees outlining the details of the mandate, saying the university is required to comply with an executive order issued by President Joe Biden in September mandating COVID-19 vaccines for all federal contractors. The UT System is comprised of the flagship campus in Knoxville, as well as campuses in Chattanooga, Pulaski and Martin, the Health Science Center in Memphis, the Space Institute in Tullahoma, the statewide Institute of Agriculture, and the Institute for Public Service. UT has a presence in all 95 Tennessee counties.
