University of Oregon
Universities Pre-pandemic

One COVID vaccine (Pfizer) has official federal approval, and the other two are sure to follow.

Even before the FDA confirmation, colleges and universities around the country announced plans to require vaccinations for all students and staff. There are some exemptions for some campuses, and an additional overlay of concern about the recent surge in new COVID cases and hospitalizations.

Neil Woolf from Southern Oregon University talks to us about how SOU is approaching the fall term starting later this month. Cathy Kemper-Pelle, President of Rogue Community College, lays out RCC's plans for the fall term.
