UCT is considering a mandatory <a class=Covid-19 vaccine policy." width="1000" height="667"/>

A proposal to make Covid-19 vaccines mandatory for campus admission has been approved in principle by the University of Cape Town (UCT) council.

The policy is set to take effect on January 1st. It requires all employees (to be able to perform their tasks) and students (as a condition of registration) to present acceptable proof of Covid-19 vaccination as of January 1st. After weeks of meetings with both staff and students, the UCT council met over the weekend to deliberate 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," according to university spokesperson Elijah Moholola.

At the December 2021 meeting of council, the UCT executive will be required to report back.
