Why Seneca is choosing to require vaccines for those on campus: Agnew

July 27, 2021
Seneca College’s choice to mandate vaccines for those on campus was an easy decision, explains Seneca President David Agnew in an editorial for The Star. The health and safety of students has been a top priority for Seneca, which has introduced enhanced sanitization, ensured only a minimal number of people are on campus, and encouraged vaccination over the summer. Agnew explains that mandatory vaccines have been used successfully to beat a variety of viruses safely and argues that this is the only way to beat COVID-19. Agnew says that being vaccinated is a way to protect the community and keep the campus environment safe and healthy. “[COVID-19] will not go away until we defeat it through vaccinations,” writes Agnew. “Seneca is proud to be doing its part.” The Star (ON)
