You may recall hearing stories about WSU, EWU, and other state schools requiring students to be vaccinated to attend class in person, unless they have a medical or religious exemption.


Columbia Basin College announced November 8th if you wish to attend the 2022 Winter Quarter and beyond in person, you must be vaccinated.

They posted this on their website:

"As a reminder, if you have enrolled or are planning to enroll for winter quarter 2022, you will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA-authorized vaccine by January 7, 2022, subject to authorized exemptions for a documented medical condition or sincerely held religious belief or practice. All winter-quarter-enrolled students are required to complete the attestation, unless you will be attending CBC online-only ."

A number of private universities around the state have adopted some sort of mandates, but many of them include a testing option. These state-funded schools do not.

The Tri-City Herald, via their editorial board Dec. 1st, published an opinion piece completely agreeing with the idea of mandatory vaccinations and all the limitations that come with them.

It will be interesting to see what effect this may, or may not, have on in-person attendance.
