Should MSU Students, Faculty and Staff Get Vaccinated Next Fall?
It's probably the right thing to do. Michigan State University is under pressure regarding COVID-19 vaccinations next fall for all students, faculty and staff members too.
At full capacity on the campus at MSU, we're talking over 40,000 students taking classes at one of the best universities around.
Certainly things have changed over the past year and a half because of COVID-19. Most students were off campus taking their classes online. So the question is, how will things move forward at MSU this fall?
According to the Lansing State Journal:
The University Council last week approved a resolution recommending mandatory vaccinations on campus, following a similar bill approved by MSU's undergraduate student government, the Associated Students of MSU.
MSU is probably facing pressure over COVID-19 vaccinations, but when fall arrives and students start coming back to campus, you never know what's going to happen during the school year.
Some may be fully vaccinated, but what about students, faculty, and staff members who are not vaccinated? Is that fair to others who are trying to stay safe?
Lansing State Journal also tells us:
"I think the most important thing you can do is act on that and make sure you're vaccinated yourself, your family members are vaccinated, anybody you come across is vaccinated," Stanley said during a University Council meeting last week. "That is really the most important thing going forward."
We can all form our own opinions when it comes to doing what's right, but keep in mind, there are thousands and thousands of people in classes, at sporting events, in dorms and apartments, and even shopping in downtown East Lansing. It will be a much safer place if everyone at MSU is fully vaccinated.
