COVID Boosters for College Students
Will your son or daughter need one before returning to college this month?
The COVID pandemic is far from over. Many college students have adjusted their normal daily routines to include masks in the classroom and regular weekly COVID tests. The latest addition is schools starting to require not just vaccines, but the COVID booster shot, in order to return to campus.
Just recently, three Washington, D. C. schools, Georgetown, American, and George Washington, have all announced that they are going to require students and staff to get COVID boosters by early 2022. The schools announced the requirements will take effect between late January and early February. So, this doesn’t affect just incoming students, but students that are currently enrolled at these Universities.
It is likely that many other College Universities will follow suit. It will be prudent for all parents and students to follow any announcements from their respective Colleges and Universities to avoid returning to campus only to find they may not be permitted to continue without receiving a booster.
Since the Court’s custody jurisdiction ends when a child reaches eighteen and graduates from high school, legally, this will not create a co-parenting issue. Practically, this will create issues for divorced parents and in-take families navigating these issues with their children.
