University of Virginia Disenrolled Over 240 Students for Not Getting COVID Vaccines

University of Virginia Disenrolled Over 240 Students for Not Getting COVID Vaccines

“Only 49 of the 242 disenrolled students had actually registered for on-campus classes this fall.”

The craziest aspect of this story is that most of these students weren’t even enrolled for in-person classes on campus.

From the Business Insider via Yahoo News:

More than 240 University of Virginia Students have been disenrolled because they didn’t get COVID-19 vaccines

The University of Virginia has disenrolled 242 students for the upcoming semester because they are not vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the Charlottesville CBS affiliate WCAV.

These students amount to roughly 1% of the school’s student body, she noted. The institution has previously warned students they may risk disenrollment if they fail to get vaccinated or submit a request for exemption.

Only 49 of the 242 disenrolled students had actually registered for on-campus classes this fall.

In April of this year, the state’s Attorney General officially decided Virginia colleges and universities “may condition in-person attendance on receipt of an approved COVID-19 vaccine” during the pandemic, according to a statement from the Attorney General’s office.

It does the Party no good for you to study, anyway.
Get out in the mines and fields, and work hard for the Party.

So, how many exemptions were granted?
How many students are studying remotely during the fall semester?
How many faculty have been granted permission to teach remotely during the fall semester?

Rather than focus upon the 49 number in isolation, what is the context? cdc.gov shows a very low vaccination rate for the City 6.3%, and 3.7% positivity rate.

I find it ironic that a University that prides itself on a student honor code is taking this approach to compliance.
