Montgomery College to require employees, students to be vaccinated

Montgomery College will require its employees and students to be vaccinated against COVID-19, according to an announcement from the school on Thursday.

All employees must submit proof of being fully vaccinated by Nov. 8. Students must submit proof by Jan. 7, prior to the beginning of the spring semester.

The vaccination requirement for students will apply to high school students who take dual enrollment courses at the college.

Both staff members and students can apply for a medical or religious exemption to the vaccination requirement. If approved, those people would be required to be tested each week.

Montgomery College employs more than 3,000 people and there are about 22,000 students.

It will undoubtedly be interesting to see reaction by employee's and student both to this action.  Staffing and enrollment may see a decrease.  Keep us informed Roy.  Mark

Morning Roy.

It is just a sign of the times.  I do wonder on when the American people will say, enough?

Roy, I go back and forth on the MANDATED vaccine but wish everyone would make this important decision themselves.

I'd rather folks do the right thing and demonstrate responsibility, rather than having to mandate it.  But, at the end of the day, this is a public health concern, and we need to do what we need to do!
