UNSW makes vax mandatory

As of this week staff who are on campus must be double vaccinated (or have a medical exemption)

This applies for stage one of the NSW Government’s Roadmap, through to December 1, during which all classes and “assessable tasks” for students stay on-line. Vaccination requirements from December until the next academic year are not announced.

The university expects all staff, plus students enrolled for in-person classes to be on campus from Term One next year. There will be “on-line provision for those unable to return.”

The university reports that 96 per cent of staff and 95 per cent of students either are, or intend to be, fully vaccinated.
