Holy Cross College to require COVID-19 vaccination for student enrollment in 2021-2022 academic year
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, April 15, 2021
Holy Cross College President Fr. David Tyson announced in a Wednesday email that Holy Cross will require all students coming to campus for the fall 2021 semester to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
In the email, Tyson said herd immunity will help the College return to a more normal experience.
“Achieving herd immunity on campus will mean so much for the normalcy, vitality, and even joy of our shared common life,” Tyson said.
Tyson said students with religious or medical exemptions will be accommodated.
Dean and vice president of student life Andrew Polaniecki will provide more details about the requirement at a later date, according to the email.
Tyson also encouraged students to take advantage of the vaccination opportunity for Holy Cross students at Saint Mary’s Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex on Friday or at any other vaccine location before the semester ends.
