An analysis by The Associated Press shows 26 of the nation's 50 largest public universities aren't requiring COVID-19 vaccination. That represents roughly 55% of students enrolled at those campuses.

Universities with vaccine mandates are concentrated in the Northeast and California.

At most of the largest U.S. public universities, students aren't obligated to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Some schools do require vaccines, but with leniency for those who opt out.

Still others have expelled students who don't comply.

Almost all of those without mandates are in states that have restricted the ability to implement COVID-19 vaccine requirements, including Florida, Texas and Arizona.
