UConn ends COVID immunization policy for students
UConn today announced it has ended its COVID immunization policy for students that was adopted during the pandemic.
"The UConn Board of Trustees voted unanimously Wednesday to decommission the COVID-19 immunization requirement, which was adopted in June 2021 as the vaccine became more widely available and the University worked toward returning its residence halls, classrooms, and offices to full capacity," UConn officials said in a release.
