University of Michigan students who choose to live on the Ann Arbor campus during the 2021 fall term will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.
The new requirement, which provides for exemptions and applies only to students who will live in residence halls and other university housing, was announced April 23 by Martino Harmon, U-M vice president for student life.
All students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated, and the university has ongoing vaccination clinics where all can get free vaccinations quickly and easily on the Ann Arbor campus or nearby. To date, Michigan Medicine has administered more than 108,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses, more than the capacity of a packed Michigan Stadium.
Now I ask, If people comply and get the vaccine and it does harm to them, Does that open U of M up to lawsuits? Do they get the cost of housing refunded to them if they choose to not get Vaccinated? Just a couple starter questions to get the mind rolling.
The big question is will you sacrifice your health for education?
