UNC announced Monday that it will require COVID-19 vaccines for all faculty, staff, and graduate and postdoctoral students. The university said it’s a response to President Biden’s executive order requiring all federal employees and contractors to be fully vaccinated by December 8. UNC has many federal contracts and grants.
