Vaccine Mandates in Independent Schools

By Net Assets posted 09-30-2021 02:00 PM

  

(from Venable) Recent developments may encourage independent schools to revisit their COVID-19 vaccination mandate policies. These include the Biden administration's announcement of a vaccination requirement for certain employers and schools, full approval of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for those ages 16 and older, emergency use approval for ages 12-16, and likely emergency use approval for ages 5-11 in the near future. Venable has developed a Q&A for schools that addresses the following: 

  • Biden's plan for vaccination or weekly testing
  • Federal investigations into bans on mask mandates
  • Vaccine requirements for students and teachers, including proof of vaccination
  • HIPPA
  • Medical and religious accommodations
