Las Vegas (KLAS) — When college students return to class on Tuesday, the board is demanding that they be vaccinated.
University officials already have a mission, and a meeting was held on Friday, January 14, to vote on whether to submit a letter in support of the student vaccine mission.
There was a lot of opposition to public comments at the conference. Meanwhile, the university and the president of the university have shown that the majority of students are obliged to vaccinate. Brian Sandoval, President of the University of Nevada, Reno, said he was also involved.
“When we say we fully support the obligation of vaccines, I think I will speak for our students, faculty and staff,” Sandval said.
Keith Whitfield, president of UNLV, said more than 90% of students on campus have already been vaccinated.
On Friday, the Nevada Higher Education Board cast 9-4 votes to approve a letter supporting the mandatory vaccine for colleges and college students.
In August, the state health committee voted to enforce vaccination obligations for students, but in December the legislative committee voted not to do so permanently.
“This casts a question in my mind about who has the authority at the time, because the Health Commission did it and then the Legislative Commission regained it,” said the district regent. Kathy McAdoo said.
Some of the meetings, including Macadoo, were confused about who could decide on a student’s mission.
During the meeting, it became clear that it was the Health Commission that could do that. It is unknown at this time when and when that will happen. Friday’s vote and letter simply show support for students’ vaccination obligations.
Nearly 4,000 signed petitions sponsored by the Nevada Faculty Alliance have also been submitted to the Health Commission in support of Mandate.
The Health Commission is planning another meeting on March 4th.
