Vanderbilt University continues to provide all full-time, benefits-eligible staff members who are diagnosed with COVID-19 access to a paid leave bank of up to one week, equivalent to 40 hours of pay.  
The bank is available to on-campus and remote workers who have been diagnosed and are symptomatic. Staff who are working remotely, diagnosed and isolating but are asymptomatic and able to perform their work should continue their normal remote work and are ineligible for the COVID-19 Leave Bank.  
Staff members eligible for COVID-19 Leave Bank must do the following: 
COVID-19 vaccination leave 
There is also a COVID-19 vaccination leave policy, which allows employees paid time off to receive a COVID-19 vaccination or to recover from the side effects of the vaccination. It gives staff one day per vaccination, or a maximum of two days. 
When possible, requests for time off to receive a COVID-19 vaccination must be made no later than three scheduled workdays before the date of the scheduled vaccination. A leader must review and process the request promptly. If an employee requests time off the same day a vaccination is made available, every effort will be made to allow the employee the opportunity to receive the vaccination.
