On Tuesday, Ohio University announced that all students, staff and faculty will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a previous Post report.
Members of the OU community must have both doses of two-dose vaccines or the one-shot Johnson and Johnson by Nov. 15. Though Pfizer is the only vaccine with full FDA approval, OU will also accept Moderna, Johnson and Johnson or other vaccines approved under WHO emergency use.
Students will have the chance to apply for an exemption, which can include for medical reasons or religious, ethical or moral beliefs.
OU’s decision to instate a mandate follows multiple other Ohio colleges, including Ohio State University and Miami University.
