OSU says beginning in the fall, the school will require nearly all incoming freshmen to be fully vaccinated.

Nearly all incoming freshmen at Ohio State will soon have to be fully vaccinated.

OSU says beginning in the fall, all first-year students who attend at least half-time with one on-campus course will have to be fully vaccinated. OSU says new students will be required to submit proof of vaccinations, and any students who don’t will have a hold placed on their account.

The school says it will still grant exemptions for religious and medical reasons.

The Columbus campus was the epicenter of a mumps outbreak last year that sickened nearly 500 people.
