"Increasing campus immunizations will reduce the spread of COVID-19 and help us all return more quickly to normal lives with less restrictions."
Tulane is the second university in New Orleans to require all students to be vaccinated for the upcoming semester, Xavier announced they will require all students to be vaccinate for the Fall semester last month.
