You want to return to in-person classes?
Then, line up for your experimental jab.
That’s the reality this fall if you’re a Rutgers student.
At the New Jersey university, school officials will refuse to let you step foot on campus unless you’ve been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
A virus that poses virtual zero risk to college-aged individuals.
But the authoritarian school administration wants you to get injected with an experimental vaccine that hasn’t received FDA approval.
It only has emergency use authorization, which doesn’t mean FDA approval.
These people are lunatics and parents would be wise to demand their tuition dollars back.
Any university that’s going to illegally mandate an experimental jab should rot.
Parents, your children will be better off learning from home or attending a sane university.
It will be interesting to see how this impacts the number of enrolled students at Rutgers this fall.
Because I would be demanding my money back and would gladly never step foot on their campus ever again.

From Life Site News:
Rutgers University announced that students hoping to begin classes there in autumn 2021 must have taken an experimental COVID-19 vaccine if they wish to learn on campus, making Rutgers possibly the first college in the United States to introduce a COVID vaccine mandate.
In a letter released Thursday, the president of the university, Jonathan Holloway, along with two other senior management figures demanded that “all students planning to attend in the Fall 2021 semester must be fully vaccinated.”
Although the university maintains that “(b)road immunization is critical to help stop the current pandemic and to protect our University community,” they have admitted there are a few, limited exceptions to the rule: those who object “for medical or religious reasons,” and anyone studying remotely.
Rutgers informed students of privileges exclusively to those who receive one of the jabs, forcing anyone who does not get injected to forgo the normal university experience.
An “expedited return to pre-pandemic normal” is promised, along with “additional face-to-face course offerings and academic experiences, opportunities for a wider range of events and activities offered at our campuses, expanded dining and recreation options at Rutgers, greater interpersonal collaboration among faculty, students, and researchers.”
On the other hand, even after being vaccinated, the school will still require students to participate in a gruelling testing program, consisting in taking an invasive PCR test (the effectiveness of which is highly disputed) every week, in addition to wearing a face mask and maintaining physical distancing measures.
The university will be policing the vaccine requirement by seeking proof of vaccination before students arrive on campus.
As things stand, the vaccine mandate does not extend to staff and faculty members, who are able to remain employed by Rutgers without being vaccinated at this time. Instead, staff are strongly urged by the university “to get immunized against COVID-19 at the earliest opportunity.”
Whether or not employers can legally require their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 remains a contentious topic. The currently available jabs against the virus have all been approved under “emergency use authorization” (EUA) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), meaning the three experimental shots are still in trial phases and have not qualified for licensing from the FDA.
And from Children’s Health Defense:
The announcement prompted Children’s Health Defense (CHD) Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. to remind university officials that federal law prohibits mandating products approved under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Emergency Use Authorization (EUA).
In a letter to Rutgers President Jonathan Holloway, Kennedy, who also serves as chief legal counsel for CHD, wrote:
“Federal law 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(III) requires that the person to whom an EUA vaccine is administered be advised, ‘of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.’”
The reason for the right of refusal stems from the fact that EUA products are by definition experimental, Kennedy wrote. “Under the Nuremberg Code, no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. Consent of the individual is ‘absolutely essential,’” Kennedy wrote.
Kennedy said forced participation in a medical experiment could result in injury.
Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, who also spoke out against Rutgers’ policy, agreed. Specifically, he said, students should be pre-screened for COVID infection before vaccination.
In an open letter to Rutgers, Noorchashm, a surgeon and patient safety advocate, wrote:
“While I fully agree with your policy of maximal immunity for all students and faculty attending in-person on the Rutgers campuses, you must also remain 100% cognizant of a potential danger of indiscriminate vaccination to some of your students. This potential danger is not only a safety risk, it would also pose a risk of liability to your university.”
Noorchashm has been an outspoken critic of indiscriminate mass vaccination because he believes people already or currently infected with COVID are at risk of severe injury, including death.
As he told The Defender last week, viral antigens persist in the tissues of the naturally infected for months. According to Noorchashm, when the vaccine is used too early after a natural infection, or worse during an active infection, the vaccine force activates a powerful immune response that attacks the tissues where the natural viral antigens are persisting.
“This, I suggest, is the cause of the high level of adverse events and, likely deaths, we are seeing in the recently infected following vaccination,” Noorchashm said.
