The council of the University of Cape Town (UCT) has accepted in principle a proposal to make Covid-19 vaccines obligatory for campus access. The policy is set to go into effect on January 1st. January 1st It requires all personnel (for them to execute their duties) and students (as a condition of registration) to produce satisfactory proof of Covid-19 immunization. Following weeks of consultation with both staff and students, the UCT council met over the weekend to consider the move.
"Council resolved that the university executive should proceed to establish an appropriately constituted panel, whose task would be to develop the operational details required to implement the campus access dispensation, as referred to above, including the principles and guidelines for exemption from a requirement to provide proof of vaccination," said university spokesperson Elijah Moholola.
The UCT executive will be expected to report back to the council at its meeting in December 2021.
