UNM President Garnett Stokes announced in a letter this evening that all students, faculty and staff at UNM will be required to get the Covid-19 vaccine by September 30th. This is a reversal of the policy announced in July. There are some exemptions:
- Medical or Religious exemptions
- Students who are in 100% virtual/online classes
Other students can get a temporary exemption because the vaccines are still under Emergency Use Authorization. However those exemptions will expire upon FDA approval.
UNM will continue to offer $100 (in your bursar account) for student's that have received the vaccine. CLICK HERE for more details on that
