State employee vaccination verification data - Dec. 6

December 6, 2021

We have been gathering data from state agencies affected by the governor’s vaccination mandate to show how many employees have completed COVID-19 vaccination verification, how many have requested and received exemptions and accommodations, and how many have been separated due to no longer meeting the conditions of employment.

The report linked below shows the most current data available (it was published Dec. 6, showing a snapshot of state agency data as of Nov. 29):

About 96% of state employees are in compliance with the governor’s vaccination mandate.

Note: The data in the spreadsheet uses a “current headcount” figure of 59,908 for the state agencies affected by the governor’s mandate. That is the total headcount as of Nov. 29 and does not include the employees who were separated due to the mandate. This approach has allowed for a true vaccination rate of current employees to assist in mandate implementation.

Including those separated employees, the total headcount would be 61,935. Based on that total headcount:

  • About 92.7% (57,392) of employees have verified they are vaccinated.
  • About 3.3% (2,030) of employees have received an accommodation. Combined, this means about 96% of state employees are in compliance with the mandate.
  • Based on available data, about 3.3% (2,027) of employees left their jobs or were terminated due to the mandate.
  • The remaining 0.8% employees (486) are pending action, which includes being in the process of being vaccinated, pending retirement, pending accommodation or separation. 

This report is based on the latest available data. We continue to gather information from agencies and we expect an update to this data to be available in early January.

We do not have access to vaccine verification data from health care providers, higher education, K-12 schools or any other employers.
