Title: Considerations for Campus Decisionmakers Announcing Continuation of or Changes to Vaccine Requirements

Author: American College Health Association

The American College Health Association (ACHA) recently released a brief on what colleges and universities might consider when continuing or revising their campus vaccine requirements.

The ACHA noted that vaccine requirements have long been in use for campuses across the country and are an effective tool to boost uptake of COVID-19 vaccines. The brief highlights the importance of various campus-level stakeholders in ensuring that the policies are implemented appropriately, such as campus health professionals, who help members of the campus community feel safe and comfortable taking the vaccine. Finally, ACHA recommends that institutional leaders plan to make the vaccine widely available to their campus communities and consider the future landscape of vaccine availability when continuing or revising vaccine requirements.
