UB's Alumni Arena requires COVID vaccinations for those aged 5-11

Published December 28, 2021

WBFO reported on UB’s updated COVID-19 vaccination policy for spectators at athletic events at Alumni Arena, quoting Allison Brashear, vice president for health sciences and dean of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, who said, “National health guidelines call for individuals to be vaccinated. So by Feb. 1, the children from 5-11 who want to attend the games must prove that they have completed their vaccination series and for those wanting to attend the games beginning Jan. 8 must prove they have had one injection... It is really part of a multi-pronged strategy and this is falling in line with public policy, in terms of getting children vaccinated.” WKBW also covered it.
