Vaccination Guidance for City Employees
City staff should seek vaccination as soon as possible. Getting vaccinated is one of the best tools we have to protect staff, workplace colleagues, and City residents.

As of September 2021, the City of Madison is requiring all employees to attest to their vaccination status. Every employee must submit a completed Vaccination Attestation Form to their Agency’s designee or Department Head as soon as practical.
If an employee indicates they are vaccinated, they must show proof in one of the following ways:
- CDC Vaccination card
- Photo of CDC Vaccination Card (front and back)
- Wisconsin Immunization Registry record or a comparable out of state registry record
Agency designee or Department Head will:
- Review and collect signed attestation forms
- Review but not be collect proof of vaccination status
- Upload attestation forms to SharePoint site
- NOTE: Only Agency designees, Department Heads, and Human Resources will have access to this SharePoint site
A new Administrative Procedure Memorandum (APM) 2-53 COVID-19 Vaccination/Testing Policy was released on September 29, 2021, and subsequently updated on November 15, 2021. Please familiarize yourself with this new policy as soon as possible. If needing a medical or religious exemption, please complete Attachment A or B for reasonable accommodations, which can be found on the APM webpage under APM 2-53.
COVID-19 Booster Shots – Paid Leave
During weeks when employees have COVID-19 booster shot appointments, supervisors will schedule them to be off from work (with pay) for 30 minutes. Depending upon operational needs, the 30 minutes employees are scheduled off from work may need to be scheduled the following week of their actual booster appointment. Employees are free to schedule their booster shot appointments at a time and location that is most convenient for them. Employees will be required to show proof of their booster vaccination to their supervisor (same information provided on the Attestation Form) to receive their 30 minutes of paid leave.
Testing protocols have been suspended.
