Can Higher Education Institutions Make COVID-19 Vaccinations Mandatory for Students?
MAY 17, 2021
It’s not the first university to make such a pronouncement, and almost certainly will not be the last, which raises an interesting question: Can higher education institutions legally mandate vaccinations? As of May 6, 2021, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education , 225 schools have made vaccinations mandatory. It is also important to note that, even if a higher education institution mandates vaccinations, exemptions may apply.
