Wesleyan University: Students must get COVID-19 vaccination to return to campus in fall
Wesleyan University will require students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to returning to campus for the fall semester.
The guidance was issued in a blog post on the Wesleyan University website.
“With the recent expansion of eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine in Connecticut and around the country, and given our relatively low positivity rate throughout the 2020–21 academic year, we are looking toward the future with cautious optimism. We expect that our fall semester will see us return to residential life and the close-knit, stimulating campus environment so meaningful to all of us.
To that end, Wesleyan will require all students to receive the vaccine prior to returning to campus for the fall semester. Every student (with the exception of those who have approved medical or religious exemptions) will need to verify with the University that they are fully vaccinated prior to their arrival.”
According to the university, students can upload their vaccination record to the Davison Health Center on campus.
