Fordham University Faces Legal Challenge Over Covid-19 Booster Mandate
“It is a violation of federal law to mandate receipt of a product that is only available pursuant to a [emergency use authorization]”
It’s surprising that some schools are still going down this road.

Fordham University threatened with lawsuit over COVID-19 booster mandate
Fordham University’s COVID-19 booster mandate, which required students to be fully vaccinated by Nov. 1, may face legal threats.
The Mermigis Law Group sent a letter on Oct. 20 to Fordham President Tania Tetlow demanding the university rescind its mandate to avoid a lawsuit.
“It is a violation of federal law to mandate receipt of a product that is only available pursuant to a [emergency use authorization],” the letter reads. “Fordham University cannot lawfully require students to receive the Covid-19 bivalent booster that is being distributed under an EUA.”
Mandating the booster shot “violates federal law, international laws, civil and individual rights, and public policy,” according to the letter.
The legal group cited several studies to oppose the mandate, including an Oct. 7 analysis by the Surgeon General of Florida which found a spike in cardiac-related deaths in young men who received the vaccine.
The group also cited President Joe Biden claiming “the pandemic is over” during a September 60 Minutes interview.
Other groups have issued their opposition to the Bronx, New York school’s booster mandate.
On Oct. 7, Fordham Parents Together sent a letter to Tetlow asking for the mandate to be lifted. It claimed Fordham is the only “university in NYC and in New York State with a bivalent booster mandate,” and is “one of only 12 universities” with the mandate nationwide.

“Tania Tetlow” says it all. I am Jesuit educated, having graduated from Marquette University more than forty years ago. I have a superb education, although the Lasallian Christian Brothers at my New Orleans prep school provided the foundation. Marquette no longer has a priest as president. Campus Ministries is run by a woman, and they have a Mohammedan chaplain on staff. Catholic education, in spite of the papacy of St. John Paul and Benedict, is no longer Catholic. If you look at universities with women presidents you see institutions who have abandoned their mission of education, and have become Cultural Marxist indoctrination centers, Western Civilization / Christendom is dying…
