I have some pretty smart friends. One group of patriotic friends helps keep me updated on current news here and abroad. We’ve chatted about lots of topics over the last year, to include political news and also covid-related information. One day last weekend, college covid mandates came up in our group chat. I jokingly said, “They’re still playing that get vaxxed or else game?”
It was no joke. Colleges still are requiring the vaccine and boosters.
Several days later, news of Yale’s latest mandate for the Spring 2023 semester quickly made headlines. In that same group chat I’m in, one of my friends shared a link to Dr. Naomi Wolf’s passionate response to Yale’s announcement. Her message to her alma mater is very clear - cut the crap.
Withdraw the mandate.
Protect the children.
Dr. Wolf cites what other parents have expressed - this is coercion. This is a violation. This, all of this, is wrong. Data shows that what colleges are doing is potentially harmful to students’ health, to include negatively affecting women’s reproductive health. But schools, and businesses also, still aren’t listening. Neither are the manufacturers.
Instead of slowing their roll, it’s full speed ahead for those who may financially benefit from the vaccines.
College can be expensive already. It should never cost one’s life though. Those who are unwilling or unable to fight the latest mandate may end up paying an extra price for their education - physically or psychologically. Physical risk may come in the form of an unfortunate side effect. The coercion and exploitation felt could surely cause some damaging psychological effects, too.
The future looks bleak for students whose colleges are in fact playing the covid vax game. It is my wish that those who can fight the fight will do exactly that. May their efforts be heard. And, like my patriotic friends provide to me, may these students be guided by light and truth always.

The Truth about Wuhan: How I Uncovered the Biggest Lie in History
By Andrew Huff: The day that Dr. Andrew G. Huff left his senior scientist and vice president role at EcoHealth Alliance was one of the happiest days of his life due to the corruption he had witnessed at the organization. However, he never thought working there would be of any great consequence to the future. He was wrong. Because, as an EcoHealth Alliance insider, Dr. Huff had had a ringside seat to one of the biggest cover-ups in history.
