Yale and Columbia Universities in the United States will require students to be vaccinated against a new type of coronavirus if they want to live in dormitories. This was reported on Monday by the Fox News channel.
According to him, this requirement will come into force in the fall with the beginning of the new school year. Other Ivy League universities – Cornell and Brown-have also made similar decisions.
It is noted that exceptions in this matter will be made for medical or religious reasons. Columbia University will also help vaccinate those students who do not have time to do so before the fall.
Formerly the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the United States reported that vaccination against the new coronavirus has become available to all country residents who have reached the age of 16. The statement notes that first of all, the vaccine can be received by US residents “of any age who suffer from some background diseases.”
