Does anyone know if college students must get their vaccinations in their home states?

I've looked for this and can't find it.

seems like you would not want to encourage an extra round trip of travel just to get a shot or two

1. Depends on their residency status.

Some states, to suppress the vote, do not allow college students to declare residency at their college address.

5. That, too.

Good argument for going to school in your home state, it seems to me.

I did.

10. That is the real answer.

Colleges set their own residency requirements to determine in-state or out-of-state tuition payment. The states don't do that. Colleges don't care about voting status. They just want the extra money.

2. They are unlikely to be eligible until they are home for summer anyway

Aside from that, I think it depends a lot on the state.

I know my daughter's school is offering it for any students who qualify as a medical condition.

3. They *should*

be able to get the shot wherever they are in school, but that age group is not eligible unless they have health issues ...

Should contact local health or school health dept

✌🏻

6. My understanding is, that once they are elibible for the vaccine the college health service on

our campus will vaccinate them. I have heard nothing about them having to return home to get it.

7. I wouldn't think they'd be eligible at this point. I'm much older than a college student but I'm not

eligible yet.
