UC President Neville Pinto's statement on vaccination

“Given the FDA’s recent full approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for people age 16 and older, many of you have asked if the University will now require mandatory COVID-19 vaccination. At this time, we are thoughtfully studying this issue and gathering input from our students, faculty and staff. Learning how other schools and states navigate this issue is helpful. In the end, though, we must make the decision that works best for our campus community. If you want to share your perspective on this issue, we recommend you coordinate your input via your respective governance group, including Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, Student Government and the Graduate Student Association.”
