CICU President Lola W. Brabham Statement on Vaccination Requirements for College Students:

“We are grateful for Governor Cuomo’s leadership on this issue and New York’s commitment to encouraging college students, and all New Yorkers, to be vaccinated. New York’s private, not-for-profit colleges and universities are committed to ensuring their communities are safe and we know that vaccination is the safest, fastest, and easiest way for us to emerge from the pandemic and resume the in-person academic activities that are the cornerstone of higher education. It is imperative that there is a unified approach to public health and we applaud our colleagues in the public sector for joining the many private colleges that have announced plans to require vaccination on their campuses. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated, as it is now widely available for all New Yorkers.”
