Mandates cause student athletes harm and discrimination
Thank you so much! My daughter is d3 college athlete, not vaccinated, but completed the exemption at her school. Keeping our fingers crossed that this does not change, however there has been no privacy on her vax status- the non vaxxed are treated differently and discrimated against and no one seems to care that their private information (vax status) has become public knowledge. It's really disgraceful. Where the F is the ACLU? HIPPA?
Thank you for sending this letter to the NCAA- people like you will make a difference in this circus!!!
I agree 100%. We have two NCAA D1 athletes who were mandated under threat of not graduating to get vaccinated. This is probably the most healthy population on the planet. There was little threat of these student athletes being harmed by COVID 19. Conversely, the harm from the lock downs & vaccine injuries are horrendous. These students who started college during lock downs are emotionally & academically stunted & suffering. How will they recover? Who at the universities and NCAA cares?
Excellent letter! I appreciate your work on stopping this discrimination. Although I don’t have college athletes (yet), I have boys that play high level lacrosse. Many high school students have taken these products and the kids are struggling. One I know was just diagnosed with a pituitary tumor. Almost an entire team at an area high school have taken these and they are experiencing high levels of chronic illness. I’m seeing very athletic boys who are not performing at the same level and I have grave concerns. For our sons we are trying to get them recruited to Florida schools and not even considering anything out east or military.
Phenomenal! Thank you!!!
Well done - thanks. (though there was only a PCR test pandemic)
Thank you to all who speaks out against this injustice, you are saving lives!
Thank you!! Finally someone has said something. There are 2 athletes at Boston University injured by the vaccine. Neither is able to compete at any level anymore. They are by no means alone. There are countless collegiate athletes that have been injured or died as a result of the vaccine mandates someone needs to be held accountable. Private prep schools around the country mandated their students to get the vaccine and the booster. They need to be held accountable.
This is the way to go - getting the Universities to come to their senses. Thank you.
As long as the authorities believe 'it would be worse to catch Covid' they will stick to an unreasonable, dogmatic and pseudoscientific application of the precautionary principle.
A thousand thank you’s. One day, every parent of college kids at NCAA universities will be thanking you.
Some good news from two days ago: pritzker dropped college jab mandates in Illinois. https://www.diverseeducation.com/leadership-policy/article/15294296/illinois-governor-lifts-covid19-vaccine-mandate-for-college-students-and-employees
strong work and agree 100%
Schools at every level will do almost anything to avoid a lawsuit. Even to the silly or ridiculous.
Hopefully this suit will spread to all schools on every level.
They are stealing our children’s futures
Thank you for doing this. These universities and colleges need to be aware that serious harm is being done to some student athletes. My son is a DIII athlete and I wrote a letter to the president of his college in the summer of 2021 stating that the vaccination requirement was unethical at best and dangerous at worst. I was dismissed by the president of the college. My son was able to secure an exemption. However, he was subjected to testing 3x per week by NCAA and 1x week by his college because he was unvaccinated. He was discriminated against, forced to room and drive by himself on team trips, forced to mask, lost friends, and was shamed by the administration at his school. He's developed anxiety about anyone finding out his vaccine status (because the school had a label to designate his unvaccinated status on his ID - a gold star of all things!!!). And all of this happened in the name of "SAFETY" as his vaccinated classmates became sick with and spread Covid around campus. This has been an absolute nightmare! The scars will last for years to come. I have another athlete looking at colleges right now and we are avoiding any schools that mandated the vaccine - it was a seriously irresponsible decision and the administrations clearly didn't do their homework when it came to such an important decision.
