Vaccination Statement 08/28/2021:
Louisiana Delta Community college has consistently encouraged our students, especially those in the health-related fields, to be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. We have used the strongest encouragement allowed by Louisiana Law and will continue to do so. There are several fundamental concepts that frame this discussion that is critical to understand. First, the statute that establishes higher education institutions relative to vaccines expressly prohibits a mandate. The statute simply requires institutions to document a student’s choice – either to be vaccinated or dissent. Second, all authority for decisions as to whether a vaccine is added to the list of vaccines for which a choice must be made as well as whether unvaccinated students should be excluded from campus when a vaccine-preventable disease is present at an institution is given to the Office of Public Health at the Louisiana Department of Hospitals. In fact, the law says that the Office of Public Health is given exclusive jurisdiction, control, and authority. The law does not allow for a “mandate” but instead allows the Office of Public Health to broaden the scope of the vaccines over which students are provided the right to choose. Further, the law provides broad power exclusively to the Office of Public Health, not higher education entities.
We recognize that the virus is a dangerous and potentially deadly disease. In some circumstances, as in nursing, part of a student’s program is spent in hospitals and other clinical settings. Sites (such as nursing homes or hospitals) may require the employees, and clinical students, to be vaccinated or wear prescribed PPE and have periodic covid tests. Louisiana Delta follows the guidelines of our partner institutions without exception. Louisiana Delta Community College is working diligently to fulfill our mission while protecting the health, safety, and constitutional rights of our students, faculty, and staff.
