Nevada regents vote to support college vaccine mandate
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Board of Trustees voted 9-4 on Friday to order Chancellor Melody Rose to send a letter to state lawmakers, health officials and Gov. Steve Sisolak to support the imposition of a vaccination mandate on students enrolled at public colleges and universities in Nevada.
The letter, while not binding, signals that battles over coronavirus measures will likely continue for the more than 100,000 students at public colleges and universities across the state. It is asking lawmakers and officials to reconsider a mandate on students to ensure education on its campuses is not interrupted.
