COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Ends for Colorado College Students
With the federal government ending the COVID-19 public health emergency today, May 11, Colorado College will be removing the COVID-19 vaccine requirement. This means incoming students will no longer be required to provide proof of completing a COVID-19 vaccine series or request an exemption.
COVID-19 vaccines are an effective tool to prevent severe disease, and CC will continue encouraging students to receive their COVID-19 primary series and all recommended boosters. As a reminder, Colorado College ended the COVID-19 vaccine requirement for new faculty and staff in April 2023.
This change is in line with national trends and aligns with higher education institutions in El Paso County. Colorado College will continue to provide COVID-19 testing through the Student Health Center. Additionally, rapid tests are widely available at multiple locations across campus.
