UWOFA calls for vaccine requirement for community members coming to campus

July 23, 2021
The University of Western Ontario Faculty Association (UWOFA) has called on Western University to require eligible members of its community to receive full vaccination before coming on campus this fall, exempting those who might have medical or religious reasons for not being vaccinated. “Everyone has a right to a safe work and learning environment, and this can only be achieved if the vast majority of individuals on campus are fully vaccinated and strict health and safety measures are in place such as proper indoor ventilation,” reads a statement from the union. UWOFA argued that there are concerns about the Delta variant and a potential fourth wave, and that the return to campus should be safe for all Western community members.
