Managing Documentation of Vaccinations and Exemptions:

BSMH does not automatically manage affiliate school vaccination processes, including exemptions. It is our health system’s expectation that affiliate schools will have a process in place to ensure students and faculty who must attend clinical placement experiences at a BSMH site will have documentation of required vaccines or an approved medical or sincerely held religious belief exemption that has been reviewed and approved by the School consistent with the requirements of the CMS regulation. 

BSMH expects students and faculty to submit via covid_student@mercy.com email address, PRIOR to clinical start:

  • Proof of full vaccination according to current CMS standards
  • Documentation of approval for exemption for medical or sincerely held religious beliefs OR
  • Application for approval of exemption from BSMH using approved forms (please request).

If you are NOT fully vaccinated according to current CMS standards, you must complete vaccination prior to starting a clinical experience or receive an approved exemption.

BSMH continues to provide COVID-19 vaccines through the local market and retail pharmacies. The COVID-19 vaccination is also widely available in the community making it convenient to receive.
