Western University says it will require students living in residence to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The London-based school is asking students to get their first shot before their arrival but says they will have 14 days after moving into the residence to get their first shot.
This mandate will be based on the supply of course.
The University says that students who can’t get vaccinated for medical reasons, or for reasons protected under the Ontario Human Rights Code, can seek an exemption.
As #WesternU prepares for a return to in-person classes this fall, the university will require students in residence to have received at least a first dose of the #COVID19 vaccine, a move endorsed by @MLHealthUnit #takecarewesternu #cdnpse #onpse #ldnont https://t.co/7bBhYCvdEt
