KAYSVILLE, Utah (ABC4) – Yet another college in Utah is requiring students to get the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the fourth higher education institution in the Beehive State to announce such a mandate.
Citing a rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across Utah due to the delta variant, and the full FDA approval of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Davis Technical College is now requiring students to have the COVID-19 vaccine by December 22, 2021.
Exemptions will be permitted for students with medical, religious, or personal reasons. Davis Tech currently recommends mask-wearing while on its campuses.
The University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State University, and Utah Valley University have already mandated vaccines for students.
