With many universities to introduce mandatory vaccination policies, some students are expected to be at loggerheads with tertiary institutions, as campuses may be off-limits to unvaccinated students.
The Universities of Stellenbosch, Cape Town and the Free State have already indicated that they are working toward implementing mandatory vaccination policies for the 2022 academic year.
The CEO of Higher Health, professor Ramneek Ahluwalia says access may, for example, be limited to areas where students congregate in large numbers.
Ahluwalia says the main focus would be to shield vulnerable university students and staff from possible infection.
