Vaccine status should only be addressed if it is a job description requirement. In this case, your vaccine status CAN be listed in the contact section of your resume. If the job description does not mention vaccine status, do not put it on your resume. However, you may still choose to do so in the cover letter (intro or conclusion) if you feel like it will benefit your application.
