Massachusetts Community Colleges announce new vaccine requirement

The Presidents of Massachusetts’s 15 Community Colleges announced Monday that all students and staff will be required to be fully vaccinated by January 2022.

This announcement comes as more municipalities across the state re-introduce mask mandates and cases of COVID-19 increase. In a statement, the Presidents of the Commonwealth’s community colleges credit the requirement on the increased access and availability of vaccines, the Food & Drug Administration’s full and pending approval of available vaccines, and CDC guidance that the COVID-19 vaccine has been proven to be extremely safe and highly effective at preventing infection, severe disease, hospitalization, and death.

“many of our students have been disproportionally impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic”

How is that, since students are a negligible risk group?

Don’t worry, Community college is like summer school you have to pay for. It’s remediation, not college.
