Prayer #367: For Rutgers University's Requirement for Student Vaccination This Fall
Universities across the nation are already thinking about their plans for the fall, especially regarding how to open their campuses for more in-person classes. One major university, Rutgers, has recently announced that it will require all students who are registering for in-person learning for fall 2021 to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. "We are committed to health and safety for all members of our community," Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway said, "and adding COVID-19 vaccination to our student immunization requirements will help provide and safer and more robust college experience for our students." The requirement for vaccination does not apply to students who opt to learn online-only, and students will be able to request medical or religious exemptions. Other universities are expected to follow Rutger's lead in this.
Pray for our colleges and universities across the country as they attempt to prepare to open up for more in-person learning at their campuses. Pray for vaccinations, where required, to be available to all students who will be returning to in-person classes.
