ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The University of New Mexico is continuing its COVID vaccine requirement into the spring semester. Like in the fall, students can submit their records to the university’s vaccine verification site, or request an exemption by December 15 to avoid disruptions in class registration or disenrollment.
