Though at least 11 colleges and universities in the nation are requiring COVID-19 vaccinations to return to campus this fall, both St. Catherine University in St. Paul and Minnesota State University-Mankato are not. Officials say the emergency use authorization for the shots limit them in what they can mandate, and they believe most students, faculty, and staff want to get vaccinated anyway. Leaders emphasize this is a temporary decision, as laws and guidance for getting the vaccine may change over time. For years, hundreds of colleges have required vaccinations against infectious diseases for enrollment.
