I lost my COVID-19 vaccine card. What do I do?
To obtain a new copy of your COVID-19 vaccine card, you must contact the health care professional, facility, or clinic site where your vaccine was administered, or contact your local county/state health care department or state immunization information system to obtain a new one. If the location where you received the COVID-19 vaccine is no longer operating, please contact your state or local health department’s immunization information system (IIS) for assistance.

Does the federal mandate for vaccinations apply in states or localities that prohibit employers from requiring COVID-19 vaccinations?
Yes. The federal mandate supersedes any contrary state or local law or ordinance pertaining to COVID-19 vaccinations.

Can a federal contractor comply with workplace safety requirements from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), instead of the requirements of the federal contractor mandate?
No. Federal contractors must comply with the requirements regardless of whether they are subject to other workplace safety standards.

Will Union Pacific assist me with locating a vaccination clinic?
New hires should seek out vaccination resources within their communities utilizing information provided by the CDC.
