DECEMBER 21, 2021 UPDATE - EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: The Legislative Commission reviewing the Nevada System of Higher Education's vaccination policy for students voted not to continue the mandate stating that students are required to have COVID-19 vaccinations to enroll in classes at a Nevada college.

Background:
Nevada state universities, colleges and community colleges require students to show proof of vaccination beginning Nov. 1, 2021 to qualify for Spring 2022 semester enrollment for on-campus, in-person classes.

The Nevada State Board of Health approved the requirement as an emergency regulation in August. The requirement does not apply to individuals with religious or medical restrictions to getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Additionally any students who do not attend on-campus classes or who are enrolled in a distance-education program do not have to get the vaccine or show proof of vaccination.

Prior to the ruling, students were already required to show proof of immunity to tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps and rubella.
