UNM weighs COVID-19 vaccination mandate to return to campus
Santa Fe New Mexican – The University of New Mexico may require students and staff to be vaccinated for COVID-19 to return to campus in the fall.
The university said it was seeking comment on the proposed requirement.
The requirement would apply to students and staff “unless they have been granted a reasonable accommodation,” the proposal said.
In Las Cruces, New Mexico State University officials encourage everyone to get the vaccine but haven’t decided to require students and employees to be vaccinated, university spokesman Justin Bannister told the Albuquerque Journal.
Numerous other colleges and universities nationwide have announced vaccination requirements.
