Ohio State to Require COVID Vaccinations

Ohio State has made the leap into the vaccine mandate world. My daughter is a Sophomore there so this makes me very happy.

They had tried to be reasonable by not mandating, but strongly encouraging it through differentiated testing and isolation protocols. But the jackasses in the Ohio State House tried to make it illegal for them to do that. The only caveat was that ban on different treatment only pertained to the vaccine while it was not approved. I was hoping that they would pull an FU on the State House fuckers and take the policy even farther when it became allowed. And so it has come to pass.

As students return back to campus for fall semester, Ohio State announced Tuesday afternoon that it would require Buckeyes to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

Ohio State President Kristina M. Johnson said in an email to the campus community that students, staff and faculty members are all now required to have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by Oct. 15. For people receiving a two-dose vaccine, both doses must be received by Nov. 15.

"There is strong support for this requirement in our community, including student, faculty, staff and university leadership," Johnson said in her email. "From the beginning of the pandemic, we have made data-driven, science-based decisions and followed the guidance of medical and public health professionals, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local public health partners."



This is a big deal as one of the largest public universities in a solidly red state.

This is going to light up the parents Facebook page but I will be drinking in the conservative tears.

Well Played Ohio State
