Lake Charles, LA (KPLC) - McNeese State University students will have to provide documentation of a COVID-19 vaccination or a waiver prior to the spring registration period.

In a letter sent to students after the FDA granted full approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine Monday, McNeese said the vaccine has been added to the schedule of required immunizations at all University of Louisiana System member schools.

“Like all required immunizations, student shall not be compelled to comply if the student submits a written statement from a physician stating the vaccine is contradicted for medical reasons or if the student submits a written dissent (waiver),” the letter reads.
