By Max Roberts | September 16, 2021
USUSA officers endorsed Utah State University's decision to require students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and urged students to help protect their community and keep campus life in-person by following public health recommendations.
The Utah State University Student Association (USUSA) released the following message to the student body today regarding the university’s decision to require COVID-19 vaccinations for students:
As student leaders of the Utah State University Student Association, we fully support our university’s decision to require students to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Vaccines are safe and effective in protecting ourselves and our community – they are how we will win this fight against the virus and its variants. Vaccines are also the most practical, sustainable way to keep classes and activities in-person, an essential goal to post-pandemic recovery.
We care about you. Your health and wellbeing are central to the university’s decision and our endorsement of it. Like most of you, we want to see you face-to-face at all of the events and traditions that make the Aggie experience so exceptional. But, we cannot move forward from this pandemic without uniting as a student body – everyone must take individual responsibility and action.
We invite you to reach out to us and continue this discussion. Your student representatives are here to listen and advocate for you.
Ultimately, the decision is yours. We sincerely ask you to become fully vaccinated – choose to protect yourself and those around you and keep USU student life as vibrant as it can be.
The Utah State University Student Association (USUSA) is the hub for student involvement and leadership at Utah State University. As the student government elected by the USU student body, the association works to improve the quality of campus life and enhance student wellbeing. USUSA is an organization made by the students, for the students, and because of students – every student at USU is a member of the association and can actively participate in all activities, committees, clubs, events and initiatives.
