The Penn State faculty senate, during a special meeting Wednesday, is expected to discuss that question. College of Liberal Arts faculty proposing this resolution, calling for those
returning to campus in the Fall to have proof of vaccination. Among other reasons,they cite the university requirement for immunizations against measles, mumps and rubella. When Governor
Tom Wolf during his lets all get immunized tour visited Penn State last week, we asked if he plans to make covid vaccinations a requirement for colleges this Fall.
“No, no, not at all”
Tuesday, an administrator at Mt Nittany Health reporting they’ve completed more than 42 thousand vaccinations so far in Centre County
“We have seen demand for vaccinations soften,and I’m sure many of you have seen similar stories across the country.its a cause for concern, we want to get that rate higher here in the
county because its a critical part of getting us back to normal”
The state health department confirms, last week for the first time the supply of covid vaccine in Pennsylvania was greater than the demand.
