The Nova Scotia Community College is the latest post-secondary institution in the Halifax area that will require students and staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 

The rule will come into effect on Oct. 12.

"Any students and employees who cannot or choose not to be vaccinated for medical, religious or other reasons will be required to be tested for COVID-19 twice per week and wear masks on campus," the college said in a statement.

NSCC says the vaccination require is an effort to protect learners and the school community at large. 

The school is finalizing details on how vaccination records will be submitted and will ensure the privacy of individuals is respected.

The decision from NSCC comes as a number of other post-secondary institutions in the HRM announced similar policies
