- Two local colleges will require students returning in the fall to be fully vaccinated against COVID. The requirement at Columbia College Chicago applies to all students enrolled for the fall semester, even those taking all their classes online. Starting today, the vaccine will be offered at an on-campus site approved by the state using doses supplied by the city.

DePaul University will also mandate that any student planning to be on campus in the fall in any capacity be vaccinated against COVID. DePaul is hosting a vaccine clinic next week for current and admitted students, along with faculty and staff.
