The goal of making the lives of the unvaxxed into a living hell is a noble goal, because this vaccine is safe and effective and the Delta variant is a deadly new threat to the very core fabric of our civilization.
But what if people eventually get mad?
As Quinnipiac University requires students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for the fall 2021 semester, students who did not request an exemption nor submit proof of vaccination will face consequences, according to Associate Vice President for Public Relations John Morgan’s email to The Chronicle.
Students who don’t comply with the mandate will face a weekly fee starting at $100 per week during the first two weeks. It will increase by $25 every two weeks up to a maximum of $200 a week. The fee can reach up to $2,275 for the entire semester.
The university will stop billing when students submit their proof of their first vaccination shot. If students become fully vaccinated by Sept. 14, they will not be charged.
Morgan said the university sent the email to around 600 students who have not yet uploaded any vaccination information.
The email states that students will lose access to Wi-Fi and the campus network if they fail to complete the vaccination mandate by Sept. 14.
As unvaccinated students are required to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing, there will be a $100 fee each time they miss a week.
These penalties and fees will be waived if unvaccinated students get at least one shot of vaccination by Aug. 25. However, they still need to participate in weekly testing until two weeks after their second dose and submit a negative COVID-19 test prior to returning.
Despite the vaccine requirement, Quinnipiac reinstated its indoors mask mandate on Aug. 2, following the rise of COVID-19 delta variant cases.
In a Tuesday morning’s email to students, the university “strongly recommends” vaccinated students to obtain a negative PCR test within five days before returning. It is required for unvaccinated students. Students must isolate for 10 days if they test positive regardless of their vaccination status. However, vaccinated students don’t have to quarantine if they are a confirmed contact of a positive case unless they are symptomatic.
The university’s polling institute found on Aug. 5, that 72% of Americans have either received the vaccine or plan to receive it while 21% said they do not plan to get one. On the topic of the vaccine mandate at college campuses, 49% of Americans oppose universities requiring their students to receive a COVID-19 vaccine while 48% support it.
I don’t know what we’re going to do if our brightest minds are braindead or really dead from the vaxx.
We’ll have to start civilization over again, I guess?
For the student who refuses to accept this switcheroo, Quinnipiac will of course return the $69,760 in tuition and fees for the academic year? It will be no loss to higher learning if this consent factory goes under.
