The Vaccination Dilemma

Alexander C. Kafka, The Chronicle of Higher Education
With students eager to get back on campus this fall and college leaders eager to have them, most institutions will try to provide an experience that’s something close to normal. It won’t look quite like it did before the COVID-19 pandemic, however.
Masking will likely remain the norm at most campuses at least through the end of 2021. Where possible, students will live in less densely populated dorms. And many classes and activities will stay at least partly online. But whatever else colleges do right, if students, faculty, and staff members aren’t vaccinated in high enough numbers, institutions’ plans may crumble.
