Duke University is requiring all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated against COVID. SMIF is going to require the same vaccination status for our external users as is required for our Duke users, namely, that they be vaccinated or have a religious or medical exemption. Beginning October 1, you will not be allowed access to SMIF if you have not been vaccinated or have an exemption.
Please submit proof of vaccination (e.g., a photo of your vaccination card) or reason for exemption to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1. Your card access to SMIF will be deactivated on October 1 if this information is not received by then.
The Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF) at Duke University is an interdisciplinary, shared resource open to Duke University researchers from all schools and departments—as well as to users from other universities, government laboratories and industry.
