News outlets including The Buffalo News, WKBW-TV, WGRZ-TV and WBEN-AM reported on UB’s new rule that requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19 to attend football and basketball games, as well as cultural and other events on campus. “We feel this is in the community’s best interest,” Michael E. Cain, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, is quoted on WIVB-TV’s website. John DellaContrada, UB vice president of communications, told Spectrum Local News: "We know that COVID-19 cases continue to rise in our region, throughout the state and elsewhere, so we wanted to be proactive and make sure the University at Buffalo is doing its part to prevent future spread of the virus.”
