How to Request Reasonable Accommodations for Vaccination Attestation
This guide is for subs who have not completed a full series of a COVID-19 vaccine and wish to request reasonable accommodations to continue their onboarding process with Swing. Subs have the option to request either a religious exemption or a medical exemption for the COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation form.
Please remember to read through the form as you fill it out.
Requesting a Reasonable Exemption
1. To get started, click on the Review and Sign button:
2. On page 2 of the Hellosign, select the appropriate link based on your accommodation needs by clicking on the blue "this form" link.
This can be for either a religious belief or medical exemption.
3. You'll see a prompt asking if you would like to continue to the google doc form for your exemption request. Please select continue:
4. From there, download by going to File -> Download -> PDF Document (.pdf) to download the doc to your computer to fill it out. Feel free to rename the document so that you remember the file.
If you're having trouble downloading the form, please refer to Google Doc's how to article.

What is the COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation?
Our COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation is required of all SwingSubs in states with vaccine mandates, as well as in states where most or all of our school partners have vaccine mandates. As of this writing, these states are CA, IL, NY, & DC, but this may change based on relevant regulatory and school partner policy changes. Our COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation allows SwingSubs to provide Swing with proof of vaccination OR request a reasonable accommodation for an exemption from our COVID-19 vaccination policy for a medical reason or a sincerely held religious belief.
