Rutgers University sets December vaccine deadline for staff
Rutgers University has announced that employees who are still unvaccinated against COVID-19 have until Dec. 8 to get vaccinated to comply with a federal mandate.
University officials said Monday that only about 10% of the staff is unvaccinated, but if those employees are not vaccinated by the deadline they will be disciplined and potentially fired.
NJ.com reports that the university is following President Joe Biden’s executive order to mandate all federal workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The university will allow employees to request medical and religious exemptions by Nov. 8.
