Children’s Health Defense (CHD) is preparing to file a lawsuit challenging Rutgers University’s student-only COVID-19 vaccine mandate for on-campus learning this fall 2021, and is seeking Rutgers students who oppose the mandate to become potential plaintiffs.
As The Defender reported in March, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD chairman and chief legal counsel, sent a letter to Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway informing him that his intention to mandate Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) products violates federal law.
In his letter to Holloway, Kennedy wrote:
“Federal law 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) requires that the person to whom an EUA vaccine is administered be advised, ‘of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.’”
The reason for the right of refusal stems from the fact that EUA products are by definition experimental. “Under the Nuremberg Code, no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. Consent of the individual is ‘absolutely essential,’” Kennedy wrote.
CHD seeks Rutgers students in any school or division who are enrolled or admitted to attend Rutgers in fall 2021, and who are interested in potentially being a plaintiff, to fill out and submit the form below and someone from CHD will contact you:
