Nope. Anyone thinking these 2 are the same isn't reading the article. Hence my comparison of UCF to UVA. UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT Students are required to be vaccinated, but the school has been lenient with those opposed to getting the shots. It has granted over 800 exemptions without denying a single request, no matter the reason. UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA Students who don’t comply with a school vaccine mandate or apply for a religious or medical exemption have been kicked out. Near the start of the semester, 193 students had been unenrolled for not getting the shots, according to Dr. Christopher Holstege, director of student health and wellness.
