California’s massive UC and Cal State systems plan to require COVID-19 vaccinations this fall

The University of California and California State University announced Thursday that they will require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty and staff on campus properties this fall once the Food and Drug Administration gives formal approval to the vaccines and supplies are sufficiently available. … Ashima Kundu, a 21-year-old neurobiology student at UC Irvine, said she and many of her friends support a vaccine requirement. “I don’t know how in-person school would be conducted safely if there weren’t a vaccination requirement,” said Kundu, who works as an EMT and is vaccinated.
