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.

  1. And when your attendance goes down…except for your liberal arts majors you will start screaming “what are we going to do with our budgets?…we are losing money?” Go ahead…keep violating people’s rights!

    1. agree. hopefully many will use an exemption to keep from having to get this “injection”.
      It is still eua status and death rates are dropping quickly from covid.
      Only 5% of our state is “positive for Covid”.
      Did you know that even if you just have a common cold that your “covid swab test” will be positive for covid?

    1. I know someone who applied for a teacher job. They researched her political affiliation and said they didn’t hire registered republications and she’d need to change her registration in order to be hired. This would be a national story if it were the other way around.
