Virginia AG Says Universities Can’t Mandate Covid-19 Vaccines for Students

Virginia attorney general said that public universities in the commonwealth could not mandate that students receive coronavirus vaccines to attend in-person classes.

 

Background: Several public universities in Virginia had previously mandated vaccination as a condition of attendance for in-person classes.

 

-University of Virginia

-Virginia Tech University

-James Madison University

-George Mason University

 

Context: Virginia’s new Republcian Gov. Glenn Youngkin ran on a platform promising to end Covid-19 mandates and prioritize education.

 

What Happened: Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares said in a legal opinion that public universities lack the authority to mandate students receive the Covid-19 vaccine to attend in-person classes.

Although the General Assembly specifically authorized public institutions of higher education to assist the Department of Health and local health departments in the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine, the legislation did not grant such institutions power to impose vaccine requirements,” Miyares wrote.

For those in high risk categories like me, I recommend they get the vaccine. YET I agree with the AG that government DOES NOT have the right to force civilians to get it.

I really don’t understand why the vaccinated think they can get covid from the unvaccinated. In the service we got numerous shots, typhoid malaria diptheria etc, should we have said we are not going to Nam they arent vaccinated. That is what a vaccine is for to protect you. I cannot believe that many people lack intelligence

Well that was a suppostion if the vaccine is tested and works although in this case I dont see that the vaccine is as effective as they say or that the science is sound as it keeps changing day to day

Vaccinated people get Covid.
Mostly from the unvaccinated
Their virus count is higher.

The Vaccinated are now carrying the spike proteins and causing more people to catch COVID. That doesn’t matter anyway the virus is getting weaker as time marches forward. There is no need to get vaccinated anymore. The virus is on a bell curve and becoming weaker.

Not true at all! I caught covid from my vaccinated daughter who is young and runs marathons. I am not vaccinated she was sicker than I was. All the people I know who are vaccinated are sicker than I was or others in my family that aren’t vaccinated. The death rate from this new variant is very low the ones who are dying have other health issues. You really should stop watching the bs on CNN and MSNBC.

They aren’t effective nearly to that extent if at all. It’s also NOT a vaccine it’s a shot vaccine’s prevent you from getting sick this worthless shot doesn’t come close.

They {the garbage} were against vaccines because Mr. Trump was for it. It’s a personal choice. We have heard so much “misinformation” from that little pos fauci that it is so hard to follow “the science” or in fauci’s case the bs.

No that is a state law. Albert you seen like a pretty smart (ass) guy! Why don’t you share with the minions where you received your medical degree, where you sat for your boards, what scientific background you have, what English degree you have, what position your work in for the Public Health Division of our country. You can’t be a know it all and no nothing Biden Jr! Whether Trump took the jab or not, he is smart enough to know that is a personal decision not a Government mandate. Everyone has their right to choose as did you. Maybe you should get 6 or 7 more
jabs to be protected better. Government does not have the right to make personal
health decisions for citizens. We do have a Constitution in this country, if you don’t want to live by our laws, take your ass somewhere else. You have ZERO right to be telling anyone else what to or not to do! So do everyone a favor and STFU!

The vax does NOT prevent transmission. It has never been suggested that it prevents transmission. Fauci, the CDC, the FDA and the WHO have all stated that it does NOT prevent transmission. Thus, only a complete idiot would mandate it. What would be the point? These gov’t people who are putting down mandates don’t even understand how the vax works. Nothing like being ruled over by a dunce.

I’m not taking any vaccine that Donald J Trump had anything to do with. That was the battle cry before sleepy creepy quid quo pro say it ain’t so pedophile joe got elected. I use that term very loosely. Now that the demonicRATS have the majority it is now a different tune. Do not disobey the Fuhrer. Or else. What hypocrisy. I hope decent honorable democrats will see that this is not good for anyone who values freedom. We need to vote these scumbags out of office.
