Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement on University of Vermont Vaccine Requirement 

Burlington, VT – Mayor Weinberger issued the following statement regarding the UVM Board of Trustees Executive Committee’s unanimous endorsement of the University’s decision to require Covid-19 vaccinations for students: 

“I welcome the announcement that UVM will require all students to be vaccinated to attend classes this fall. Covid vaccines have proven themselves to be extraordinarily safe and effective, including against known variants such as the more transmissible Delta variant, and having the entire student body inoculated will help keep community infection rates at very low levels this upcoming fall and winter. I continue to strongly urge all other unvaccinated Vermonters to protect themselves and the community by getting a shot as soon as possible."
