Drop College COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
More than 80 colleges and universities in the U.S. are still mandating COVID-19 vaccines for students returning to their campuses for the 2023-2024 school year. Let’s make that number zero.
Currently, more than 80 colleges and universities in the U.S. are still mandating COVID-19 vaccines for students returning to their campuses for the 2023-2024 school year. Let’s make that number zero by showing our support for students by informing the presidents of these unrelenting institutions that this unnecessary mandate jeopardizes the health and well-being of their students.
There is no community benefit to COVID-19 vaccination. It is an undisputed scientific fact that COVID-19 vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission. The risk of severe COVID-19 in the college-aged population is near zero, and the vast majority of the population now has protective immunity to the virus.
There is no rationale for imposing a mandate on college students. Most colleges and universities dropped their COVID-19 requirements this year based on current science.
We must remind those at the top of university administrations that COVID-19 vaccines have serious potential for harm, including myocarditis, pericarditis, multi-inflammatory syndrome (MIS), pulmonary embolism, sudden cardiac death, and neuropathic and autonomic disorders.
Please insist that all remaining U.S. colleges and universities remove this barrier from individuals seeking higher education. Students deserve a long overdue sense of normalcy, which, for some, has yet to be a part of their college experience.
President Biden officially ended the public health emergency on May 11, 2023. These mandates are unreasonable and unwarranted, and we need these colleges to drop their COVID-19 vaccine mandates TODAY.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
- Take Action Now to:
- Send an email to the president of each college and university that still has a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in place.
- Call them to express your concerns about these unnecessary and harmful mandates.
- Post to these presidents’ social media.
- If you are a student at one of these schools, please find information on vaccine exemptions (under “Resources”).
- Share this information with your family and friends and encourage them to educate themselves and take action.
