ST. LOUIS (AP) — Washington University in St. Louis has become the latest college to announce plans to require students to be fully vaccinated before returning to campus this fall.

KMOX reports that the school says faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to get vaccinated. The school also said it would allow some exemptions for religious or medical reasons.

The university informed students in a letter that if students can’t get vaccinated before arriving, the university will help them get a vaccine locally.

A university spokesperson says they will provide more information for employees in the coming weeks.
