COVID-19 Testing & Vaccination

VCU offers COVID-19 testing and vaccination on campus at no cost to employees. With the concurrence of our Public Health Response Team, VCU strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccination and boosters. Unvaccinated individuals are more likely to become infected and hospitalized compared to those who are vaccinated.

Symptomatic Testing

Drive-through testing is offered at the VCU Medical Center Visitor Parking Deck drive-through location. Symptomatic employees do not need to call to schedule testing. Testing Directions. Symptomatic employees testing at the VCU Medical Center Visitor drive-through location must show their badge and fill out the intake form for COVID-19 testing. Employees must notify their supervisor and remain off-site until the results are received. If test results are positive, employees and supervisors will receive an email notification with the earliest return-to-work date.
