SUNY schools are asking students to get the vaccine in hopes of giving them a normal year of college

The SUNY school system is asking its students to get vaccinated before the start of the fall semester in an attempt to have them experience as normal of a college year as possible.

The state has issued a vaccine mandate for any students pursuing in-person classes this year, but the plan is contingent on the full FDA approval of at least one of the vaccines, which hasn’t happened yet.

A survey shows that almost 75% of students say they have had at least one dose of the vaccine.

Unvaccinated faculty will be mandated to complete weekly testing for Covid-19.
