Federal judge upholds Indiana University's vaccine mandate

Eight students filed suit against the university on the grounds that the college’s requirement infringed upon their individual liberty and bodily autonomy. They also contended that the COVID vaccine should not fall under the umbrella of immunizations schools typically list as prerequisites for enrollment given that its development and rollout was expedited and that it was not technically approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

The attorney for the students who objected to the rule commented: “What we have here is the government forcing you to do something that you strenuously object to and have your body invaded in the process.”
