Princeton University will require COVID-19 vaccines for students

Princeton University is part of the growing list of New Jersey’s four-year colleges mandating COVID-19 vaccination for returning students. The Ivy League school says the requirement applies to all undergraduate, graduate and international students, about 8,000 total.

Medical and religious exemptions will be allowed. It is unclear if professors, faculty and other staff will be part of the mandate.
