KANSAS CITY — The University of Missouri campuses will not mandate COVID-19 vaccinations following a 5-3 vote Thursday by UM System Board of Curators to prohibit any such measure.

The resolution prohibits such a mandate for the majority of students, faculty and staff. However, the decision does not affect those who were already required to have vaccinations, including some workers who interact with patients in health care or clinical environments, officials said.

Darryl Chatman, chair of the Board of Curators, said the decision was a matter of "individual liberty" and "freedom" for university students and employees to make their own decisions about their health.

Such sentiments were echoed by the curators in favor of the resolution.

“I’m a believer in the vaccine, to be clear, and I believe we should encourage, and this board has even incentivized, vaccinations," said Jeffrey Layman of Springfield. "But I do not believe we should mandate the vaccine. I think the faculty, staff and students can make their own personal decisions better than we can."
