UB reports over 90% vaccination rate


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The University at Buffalo provided updates to its health and safety protocols for the upcoming semester on Wednesday.

College leaders say everyone must wear a mask indoors, regardless of whether or not they are vaccinated.

But soon, all UB students will have to get vaccinated to comply with the SUNY vaccination mandate.

Right now, slightly more than 90% of students have been vaccinated, with the number expected to rise.

College leaders say they’re hopeful students and staff will comply with the precautions.

“Last year our students, faculty and staff showed remarkable resilience in the face of tremendous difficulty. We have no doubt that the UB community will once again rise to the occasion, and make this an incredible and most importantly safe year of research, learning and vibrant activity,” UB Provost Scott Weber said.

The college will also be installing a new wastewater monitoring program and increasing airflow in campus buildings.

Students are coming back to campus this week, and will start on August 30.
