Rethinking Covid-19 Vaccine Mandates (Physician Outlook)

The Scientific Justification, Ethics and Legality of Vaccination Policies for Schools and Universities

A word of caution to all employers, schools, and universities considering mandates: just because one can legally implement such mandates, doesn’t mean one ought to implement them. There is no scientific or ethical justification for mandating vaccination in those who have had prior infection. They already have immunity. There is also no scientific and ethical justification for COVID mandated vaccination policies for children and young adults – they have increased risk of recently identified vaccine associated complications and are the very cohorts with the lowest risk of severe COVID complications. Vulnerable adults and elderly who feel unsafe around children and young adults can choose to be vaccinated and continue to wear high quality masks.
