College students are excited to learn that they will be able to return to their campuses in the fall to resume a regular, in-person school year. BRIGHT editor Paulina Enck, reports, “As a recent graduate who closed out senior year over zoom, my excitement and envy go out to them. However, this thrilling development comes with serious strings: mandatory COVID vaccinations.”
In The Federalist, Jordan Davidson Explains:
Hundreds of universities are choosing to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for students and staff no matter their risk level or concerns about the shot.
Political educators combined with the social pressures created by activist students on campuses all around present a new challenge to incoming and also returning students who may have grown accustomed to attending in-person classes during the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters. It also dampens and even discourages healthy discussion and debate about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Many students will be grappling with taking an ethically questionable vaccine for a virus that has significantly low chances of killing healthy people in the college age group, continues Ms. Davidson.
More than 100 other universities have issued vaccine mandates. Here is a state-by-state look.
