Marquette to Require Student Vaccinations


Marquette University will require students to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend classes this fall.

The university made the announcement on Monday.

The school says students will need to get vaccinated by Aug. 1 to attend classes.

Marquette is the third private university in the state to mandate vaccinations for students.

The University of Wisconsin System hasn't mandated student vaccinations but UW-Madison officials are considering a vaccine requirement to live in its dorms.

More than 40,000 UW-Madison students and employees have been vaccinated so far.

Republican legislators held a hearing last week on a bill that would ban UW schools and state technical colleges from mandating vaccines or testing as a condition for being on campus.
