Notre Dame Requiring Students to Have Covid Booster Starting Next Year

Notre Dame Requiring Students to Have Covid Booster Starting Next Year

“the updated bivalent booster vaccine protects against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omnicron BA-4 and BA-5 variants”

A lot of the big schools are doing this. It seems the pandemic is never going to end in higher education.

Campus Reform reports:

Notre Dame students cannot enroll without COVID booster: report

University of Notre Dame (ND) students received an email on Monday informing them that in order to enroll in the 2023-2024 academic year all students will be required to have a bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccine.

The email was first seen on Twitter, posted by ND post-graduate fellow Mary Frances Myler, and signed by ND’s Director of University Health Services Edward P. Junkins.

Junkins explained that the new policy was necessary to “prevent serious illness related to coronavirus.”

The Observer, an independent newspaper at the university, also reported the new policy.

“Bivalent booster vaccines provide an additional layer of protection against COVID-19 and, unlike previous monovalent boosters which were designed only to protect against the original virus that causes COVID-19, the updated bivalent booster vaccine protects against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omnicron BA-4 and BA-5 variants,” the announcement reads.

The university also detailed plans to open a vaccination clinic for students to obtain their booster shot on campus with details coming after Thanksgiving.

Students who receive their booster shot off campus must upload their information to the university portal. Students who use the on-campus vaccine clinic will have their information uploaded automatically.

Any student that fails to obtain the booster shot before the deadline will have a hold put on their university account preventing enrollment into the following semester.

So public hooliganism and deprivation of rights — i.e., shouting down a speaker — gets you a pencil mark in your record…
While not getting the jab puts your entire education on hold.
America is fucked.

“As you know, a high rate of vaccination is critical to combat COVID-19 …”

Starts off with a lie. If you assume a lie you can justify/prove just about anything. Detached from reality indeed. The tyranny aspect is that nobody forces them to recognize reality, to give up “their truth” in favor of the actual truth.
