COVID-19 Vaccine

This optional badge indicates a person is fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Badge Description

This optional badge indicates a person is fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

According to current Guidance for Mountaineers Programsyou are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after you get your second shot if you had to get two doses (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or two weeks after you get a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson (J&J)/Janssen).

What does this badge allow me to do?

This badge serves as COVID-19 vaccine verification for any vaccine-required Mountaineers programs.

How do I get this badge?

Mountaineers leaders may assign this badge following COVID-19 vaccine verification. Leaders should review the Washington State Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination Status guidelines when verifying vaccination status.

Leaders assign this badge by enrolling members as students in the current COVID-19 Vaccine Verification course. This badge functions as a "student" badge, and will be awarded upon enrollment.

Leaders who wish to receive the badge should have their vaccination verified by another leader.

To enroll students in the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification course, leaders must be on the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Committee as an "Admin". Please contact your activity committee chair to be added to the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Committee roster.

If/when the definition of "fully vaccinated" changes, The Mountaineers will update our program guidance, expire all active COVID-19 Vaccine badges, close the current COVID-19 Vaccine Verification course, update the COVID-19 Vaccine badge page, and open a new course to verify vaccinations against the updated definition.

Frequently Asked Questions

As a leader, where do I check if a member has the COVID-19 Vaccine badge?

Leaders can find badge information on a member's profile, by selecting "Review" next to a members name on a course/activity/event roster (scroll to the bottom of the pop-up window to see badges), or by downloading the roster (a list of badges will be displayed in the far right column).

As a leader, how can I assign the COVID-19 Vaccine badge to participants from my recent activity?

To enroll students in the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification course, leaders must be on the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Committee as an "Admin". Please contact your activity committee chair to be added to the COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Committee roster.

AS A LEADER, DO I HAVE TO ASSIGN THE COVID-19 VACCINE BADGE AFTER VERIFYING SOMEONE’S VACCINATION?

No, but this tracking system will only be as big as our leaders build it. If you appreciate the convenience of being able to check a member’s vaccination status through the website, we encourage you to help by assigning vaccine badges for your students, participants, instructors, and fellow leaders.

As a leader, can I add the COVID-19 Vaccine badge as a prerequisite for enrolling in my course or activity?

No. To respect member privacy, this badge is optional. Members should always have the option of arranging an alternate method of verifying vaccination status before a vaccine-required program.

As a member, is this badge required to participate in courses, activities, and events?

No. This badge provides a convenient method for members and leaders to verify vaccination for participation in vaccine-required programs. If you prefer, you may arrange an alternate method with the leader to provide proof of vaccination before a vaccine-required program. Not all courses, activities and events have a vaccine requirement. Please contact the leader with any questions about participation expectations.

Are you retaining member vaccine records?

No records other than "yes, verified" via receipt of this badge  will be retained. We encourage leaders to delete all electronic vaccine records after verification.

I don't want my vaccination verification displayed on my profile. What should I do?

Following a vaccine-required program, please tell your leader that you would not like to receive the COVID-19 Vaccine badge. If you do receive the badge, please contact info@mountaineers.org to have the badge removed from your profile.
