No Mumpee-No Admitee

One university in Maine is barring students at the door if they haven't had their shots:
PORTLAND, Maine - The University of Southern Maine began notifying more than 400 students Thursday that they're being banned from campus for failing to meet the latest vaccination requirements for mumps.

Campus officials provided student lists to professors and were trying to reach about 50 on-campus residents to make sure they have another place to go.

The 426 students were among about 1,300 full-time or residence hall students on the two campuses who were told to get their vaccinations up to date following an outbreak of mumps in Maine that included at least one university student.

College students being the resourceful individuals that they are, I wonder how long it will take for them to figure out that all they have to do to get out of this "requirement" is ask for a "religious waiver" which will exempt them from all vacination requirements.
