Colorado College latest to require COVID-19 vaccine for fall term

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Colorado College became the latest university to require the COVID-19 vaccine for all students and staff for the upcoming 2021 fall term.

CC made the announcement Monday, saying they plan to resume full in-person learning, activities, and events. And to do that safely, anyone working, living, or learning on campus must be vaccinated.

The university hosted its first campus vaccination clinic on April 17. Officials say more clinics are being planned.

According to CC officials, they will consider requests for vaccine exemptions for medical, religious, and personal reasons.

In early April, Fort Lewis College in Durango became one of the first colleges in the nation to require a COVID-19 vaccination for students returning in the fall.
