Nevada’s vaccine mandate for college students overturned

Local News

(KLAS) – The vaccine mandate for college students in Nevada was struck down by state leaders Tuesday night.

A legislative commission voted against the measure that was initially passed this summer.

Any students whose registration has been on hold for not having the vaccine must be lifted immediately according to Melody Rose, chancellor of the Nevada System of Higher Education.

Employees at colleges must still have the vaccine and masks are still required indoors.

The vote also struck down the mandate for state workers who interact with vulnerable populations.
