Medical School Students Denied Religious Exemptions from C-Shots

Jul 23, 2021

Students R., S., and K. are medical students at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM)  in Louisiana and were notified that the administration was requiring them to receive a COVID-19 “vaccine” as a condition of enrollment and participating in classes and activities in person. They are also required to wear a mask until they provide proof of being fully vaccinated. The three students hold sincere religious beliefs that prohibit them from receiving the COVID shot. Louisiana law requires all colleges to grant an exemption from a vaccine upon receipt of a “basic written dissent” from the student. They exceeded the legal requirement by submitting the school’s “forms,” their own personal letters, and statements from their ministers substantiating that having the injection violates their sincerely held beliefs. However, the school not only denied their exemption requests but created a “snitch” program targeting the students. They have since received threatening emails and have been told they could be suspended and recommended for dismissal if they continue their studies without taking the shot.
