LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Doane University announced their decision to require all students to get the COVID-19 vaccination last Friday.

“The experiences Doane is known for — our close relationships with students and faculty, our campus events, our athletic and performing arts programs — are far less likely to be interrupted due to quarantines if a majority of our campus populations are fully vaccinated,” Doane University says on their website.

Students are able to request vaccination extensions or an immunization exemption but have additional responsibilities for COVID-19 testing and reporting. Students taking fully online classes will not be required to get vaccinated.
