Indiana University is now requiring all students and employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine ahead of the fall semester.

The Univesity has also threatened to cancel class registrations and eliminate staff members who do not comply.

University officials also announced the requirement for all campuses saying it will allow the University to lift most pandemic-related restrictions, including face masks and social distancing.
