Universities Fail Discrimination Test

Many colleges are requiring students to get vaccinated for COVID-19 before returning to campus, discriminating against those who have medical reasons for not doing so. Action Alert!

An increasing number of schools are announcing that students will be required to receive COVID vaccinations before returning to campus. This raises serious concerns that those with legitimate medical reasons for not getting vaccinated will be discriminated against by not being able to fully take advantage of a school’s services and facilities. We have to push back against this growing wave of mandatory vaccinations wrought by social pressure and coercion.

The list of schools requiring vaccination is too long to reproduce here but includes many high-profile private institutions in addition to state schools. All of the “Ivy League” schools, for example, will require COVID vaccines. A smaller subset of schools will only require the vaccine if the FDA fully approves one of the shots (currently all of the COVID vaccines are being administered under an emergency use authorization which falls short of full approval). The California University system, for example, has said that it will require COVID vaccines for students if one becomes FDA approved, as have the State University of New York (SUNY) and City University of New York (CUNY) systems.

The list of schools that have announced they will not require COVID vaccination is far smaller, including Georgia public universities, Ohio State University, the University of Iowa, and the University of Florida.

Note that many states have religious or personal belief exemptions to vaccination (with the exception of CA, MS, NY, WV, ME, and CT). All states have medical exemptions, but these are incredibly difficult to get. The CDC lists medical contraindications for required vaccines, but these are absurdly narrow, limited for the most part to those who have a documented, serious allergic reaction to a previous vaccine.

Last week, ANH-USA and ANH-International launched a campaign to allow patients with autoimmune conditions, or a risk for developing autoimmunity, to refuse COVID vaccination. The available scientific data clearly demonstrates that these patients are at increased risk of suffering from the serious, life-threatening blood clots associated with COVID vaccination. Yet we’re also increasingly seeing COVID vaccination as the prerequisite for participation in many activities. This unfairly discriminates against individuals who have legitimate medical concerns with receiving a COVID vaccine.

Policies requiring COVID vaccination are putting students in danger. The University of California system has over 273,000 students; the SUNY system has 424,000. We know that autoimmune disease affects roughly 8 percent of the population. In California and New York alone, that means there could be as many as 55,760 students in those state university systems that have an autoimmune condition and are at risk of developing vaccine-related blood clots in the brain.

We cannot allow students who have a legitimate medical reason to avoid COVID vaccination to be forced out of their college campuses, denied the right to attend in-person classes, attend university events, and more. We cannot deny rights to those who wish to avoid preventable danger from a COVID vaccine.

Action Alerts! Write to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities and tell them to recommend that colleges do not mandate the COVID vaccine, especially for autoimmune patient. Please send your message immediately. 

Additionally, please write letters or call your local universities to oppose vaccine mandates, and let us know what kind of response you get at [email protected].


  1. There is no reason not to be vaccinated. As I work in this field, anything saying otherwise is propaganda. I can’t do anything about anyone else’s ignorance, but I know I would not want my child to go to a university (a hotbed of young people who are really bad at social distancing and disinfecting their hands regularly). I think that I need to unsubscribe to this email service, since I clicked on this article thinking that this was a legitimate call to action against prejudice and bigotry.

    1. I can you give you over 4200 reasons – those who took the injection and died for a virus with a 99.97% recovery rate and the tens of thousands who’ve experienced horrific side effects.

  2. Should not be able to require for ANY reason not simply medical church affiliation. That is what needs to be put into place as a petition!

  3. Correction to your article: The California State University system IS allowing religious exemptions at this time.

  4. If they want mandatory vaccinations then they have to be liable for adverse reactions.

  5. This is pure discrimination.
    Vaccine do not fit everyone body
    My son has autism and other problems.. so I need to decide if sent to school or not or doing home… that is not fear..
    We are going back to wearing a star to show we are Jewish.. California is turning nazi..

  6. For those who don’t take the jab, you will not be safe on campus in any case! What those who are jabbed are now shedding in their sloughed skin & mucus cells & shed hair carries altered DNA that can affect you too. Stay FAR away from them.

  7. Well, hopefully this kind of thing will help (below) the GATES funding link! Although “Vaccines” that are not actually vaccines”, the makers should pay for this “vaccine disaster! Of course universities will force it, that is where they’re funding/bribing comes from to do the wrong thing!
    “The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest foundation, has disbursed over $6bn in funding to 392 universities in 51 countries and higher education institutions overs the past 5 years”
    Employers May Be Held Liable for ‘Any Adverse Reaction’ if They Mandate COVID Vaccines
    New OSHA guidance holds employers liable for adverse reactions if they require employees be vaccinated for COVID as a condition of employment, which could negatively impact the employer’s safety rating.

    1. I forgot to say, no school indoctrination, is worth paying the big bucks for, just for vaccine suicide? or future illness, through forced drug experimentation!

  8. Please do not mandate the covid vaccine. This is violating freedom of religion and our right to choose.

  9. Recommend that colleges do not mandate the COVID vaccine, especially for the autoimmune patients.
