There are new developments on vaccination requirements at two universities in Connecticut.
A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit seeking to block UConn's vaccination mandate.
The judge said the suit was moot because two of the students who filed it had received exemptions, while the third never applied for one.
And late on Monday evening, there was word that Quinnipiac University may impose weekly fines on students who refuse to be vaccinated or ask for an exemption.
The school is expected to unveil more details on the plan Tuesday.
