Again, from Marquette University’s website:
Are we requiring the COVID-19 vaccine?
Answer: Marquette is requiring that students (undergraduate, graduate, professional) who will be attending classes during the 2021-22 academic year be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by Aug. 1, 2021.
Marquette is not alone.
Today’s read is from Andrew Bostom, MD, MS, an associate professor of family medicine (research) at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University; Aaron Kheriaty, MD, a professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Irvine School of Medicine and the director of the Medical Ethics Program at UCI Health; Peter A. McCullough, MD, MPH, a professor of medicine at Texas A&M University College of Medicine; Harvey A. Risch, MD, PhD, a professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health; Michelle Cretella, MD, the executive director of the American College of Pediatricians; and Gerard V. Bradley, JD, a professor of law at the University of Notre Dame. They write:
All the colleges and universities that have announced mandates have also indicated they will grant medical exceptions. Some have publicly made available the criteria according to which they will decide exemption petitions.
We have examined many of these rubrics. The narrow scope of these medical exemptions is alarming: the exemptions are so medically unsound and unduly restrictive that they create a clear and present danger to the health, and potentially, the lives, of students subject to these mandates.
