|COVID Vaccination Rate Goals|
Is there a target or a goal for vaccination rates? At what point can colleges and universities begin to reduce or eliminate the testing requirements? What indicators will inform that decision, such as vaccination rates, community transmission rates, etc.?
While there is no identified goal or target for vaccination rates, MDH has identified a very high vaccination rate (85-90%) as being needed to blunt the effects of the delta variant. Currently, there is no timeline for eliminating the proof of vaccination or testing requirement.
Similarly, MMB has not indicated how long the employee policy may be in place. The CDC’s county-level transmission rates are one indicator that will inform any possible changes in mitigation strategies, along with campus case rates and vaccination rates.
