U Of T Won't Be Making COVID-19 Vaccinations Mandatory For In-Person Learning This Fall
Sheridan College won't be, either.
The University of Toronto will be requiring students who are living in residence during the 2021-2022 school year to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Though, when it comes to in-person learning, it will not be mandatory for students to be vaccinated in order to attend classes on campus.
"We are not aware of any Universities requiring vaccines to come to campus," a spokesperson for U of T told Narcity in an email. "U of T encourages all eligible members of the community to get a COVID-19 vaccine and we are partnering with local public health authorities and hospitals to facilitate vaccination of our community members."
A spokesperson from Sheridan College also noted that "vaccines are not mandatory for students attending classes in person or living in Residence at this time, or for staff." Though, the spokesperson did mention that "a recent survey of our students indicated that 90% plan to be vaccinated by the Fall."
Both institutions said that they will adjust their policies and guidelines based on advice from the province.
