COVID-19 VACCINE PLANNING
COVID-19 VACCINE LEAVE GUIDANCE
DOD and DON have authorized the use of Administrative Leave (LN) for all employees approved to be absent from duty for COVID-19 vaccinations at either a DOD or private health care facility or pharmacy.
Administrative Leave Usage:
- Up to four (4) hours to receive COVID-19 vaccination (per dose); to include time spent traveling to and from the vaccination location, time at the vaccination location, and, if needed, for a reasonable amount of recovery time.
- On a case-by-case basis, supervisors may grant additional time for extenuating circumstances. (e.g., an employee shows up for a confirmed appointment time but is unable to receive the vaccine and has to reschedule.)
- No more than two (2) workdays, for recovery, per vaccination dose, for employees who experience an adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccination.
Employees should record time and attendance for COVID-19 vaccinations by typing the hour code (THC) “LN” and environmental/hazard/other code (EHZ) “PF.”
Employees vaccinated prior to 14 April 2021, who used personal leave for vaccination(s) or had absences due to recovery time (adverse reactions/illness) for vaccinations during duty hours, may retroactively substitute Administrative Leave. Supervisors should work with employees to make timecard correction(s), as needed for time already taken.
Any issues with making retroactive adjustments should be raised with the NPS Timekeeping Department: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly encourage personnel to volunteer to receive the vaccine through any available method. NPS does not have vaccines. These are provided via the Army and local county to our population.
