UNMC To Require Vaccination Or Masks; Work With Patients Cited


     The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha is requiring faculty, staff and students to document whether they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19. 

      The requirement kicks in 2 weeks from today. Those who can’t or won’t prove they’ve been vaccinated will have to wear masks.

      UNMC officials say the documentation is required because medical students work with patients in clinics and hospital wards. 

     The requirement applies only to UNMA and none of the other campuses in the University of Nebraska system. 

       Creighton University will require students on its Omaha and Phoenix campuses to be fully vaccinated starting July 7
