Boston College COVID-19 Booster Mandate



My son is studying in Boston

Elena Mochkarova (Miami, 2022-01-07)


I am a concerned citizen.

Elzbieta Werbowski (Buffalo, 2022-01-07)


We have lost our minds during two years of Covid 19. There is a psychological psychosis happening in this country. Normal citizens have become mad. Fear is away to control the masses. No longer is logical scientific immunity recognized.

Joyce Jackson (Amesbury , 2022-01-07)


A dear friend attends BC. This is wrong. My daughter goes to another college in Boston and we want this to spread to ALL COLLEGES.

Michelle Johnson (Minnetonka, 2022-01-07)


Was considering this school for my children. My sister lives in Dover. Sadly with the horrible mandates implemented in your state, I won’t be visiting anytime soon, let alone subject my child to this situation! This is America remember…

Sherri Kettner (Glendive, 2022-01-07)


Vehemently disagree with the policy

Elizabeth Grande Cassidy (Deephaven, 2022-01-07)


I oppose my Alma Mater, Boston College, requiring that students and faculty be vaccinated and boostered to attend classes for the spring semester.

Cynthia Broccoli (Syracuse , 2022-01-07)


I'm signing because every day is pointing to increasing evidence that the potential side effects of the shots outweigh the risks for college-age students, particularly males. Where there is risk there must choice. This is one size fits all medicine which is contrary to standard medical procedure.

Elizabeth Yost (Washington, 2022-01-07)


Boosters should not be mandatory. It is a personal health decision between the student and their doctor.

Annmarie Frio (Springfield , 2022-01-07)


Alumni '92. I agree 100% with this petition. We can not continue to mandate continuous vaccines to the college aged population. It has not been studied. Right now, all data points to vaccines causing more problems for this age group than the actual COVID virus. We also know now that the vaccine does not prevent the spread of COVID. The vaccine only helps the individual who receives the vaccine. My body my choice.

Maria Wilcox (Wilton, 2022-01-07)


The shot is experimental, there is NO FDA approved Covid shot available, this mandate breaks 10 Nuremberg Code regulations, there are other known cures IF you do get Covid and it is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

Christine Fennes (West Hempstead , 2022-01-07)


These jabs dont stop people from getting it or spreading it!

Wendi Cookman (Dracut, 2022-01-07)


I’m the parent of an employee who lost her job due to the vaccine mandate even though she was working remotely and submitted a very compelling religious exemption request.I am very concerned as a citizen about this sweeping mandate and the unknown potential health consequences of this vaccine.

Jane Faghan (West Bridgewater, 2022-01-07)


The people who are allowing these mandates are NOT following the science. If the vaccine worked, the states with the highest number vaccinated wouldn't have the highest number of cases. Look at the studies. Look at the data. Start taking your own advice and follow the science.

Parsons Stephanie (Georgetown, 2022-01-07)


This unconstitutional and unnecessary.

Pamela Riddle (NORTH GRAFTON, 2022-01-07)


I am a BC parent/grandparent.

Nancy Hamilton (Potomac, 2022-01-07)


I believe in the ethics and rationale of the letter's content. Extraordinarily important implications for society and these educational institutions.

Chris Crawford (Boston, 2022-01-07)


I am a parent and grandparent of BC graduates/students.

William Hamilton (Potomac, 2022-01-07)


Vaccine mandates are wrong.

Roberto Pandolfi (Waltham , 2022-01-07)


Where there is risk there must be choice!

Karina Estrada (Holyoke , 2022-01-07)


This is tyranny !

Vince Vitale (Auburn , 2022-01-07)


With the questionable safety and efficacy of Covid 19 vaccines for young adults in general and college athletes specifically (and with the astounding number of "breakthrough" cases for all ages), that any school has mandated vaccines is alarming.

Lindy Crawford (Boston, 2022-01-07)


I don’t believe anyone should be forced into a medical treatment he/she doesn’t feel is best for him/her.

Steven Niehaus (Fort Myers, 2022-01-07)


Natural immunity and previous shots makes this unnecessary along with the proven medical issues with this experimental shot. The school is doing more harm than good with the booster mandate

Ryan Kotula (Eden Prairie, 2022-01-07)


BC Parent. A vaccine booster should not be required of BC's students. The evidence is clear that covid19 vaccines do not stop infection or transmission. And there is no evidence that a vaccine booster provides a health benefit beyond that provided by the initial vaccination. Moreover, each vaccine shot comes with the risk of myocarditis and other complications. Vaccine booster should be an individual decision, not coerced by the school administration.

Andre Pauka (Castle Pines, 2022-01-07)


I hate mandates

Kevin Casey (Nokesville, 2022-01-07)


I'm a Parent of a child that is currently attending.

Ricardo Elysse (Lynn, 2022-01-07)


Natural immunity is better

David McDonald (Larchmont, 2022-01-07)


Such a mandate is fundamentally unconstitutional!

John O'Keefe (S. Hamilton, 2022-01-07)


Double-Eagle '86 and '98

Robert Szymanski (Pooler, 2022-01-07)


I am signing because we have children who will be setting off to college shortly. Health choices should be left up to the individual and their medical provider. A university should not be able to require medication or procedures when they have no actual knowledge of an individual’s medical health and they have no legal access to that information. Not to mention, the vaccine has not been proven to prevent transmission or serve much purpose for this very low risk group.

Rachael Kulak (Glen Allen, 2022-01-07)


The vaccine clearly doesn’t work. Is experimental and there are more adverse events recorded on VAERS than all other vaccines combined.

Trisha Dalton (Greenwich, 2022-01-08)


I am an alumni (double eagle) and hole heartedly agree with this petition.

Lisa Pereira (Foxboro , 2022-01-08)


I am very upset that my young grandson is being forced to get the vaccine and booster when we don't know at this time what the long-term effects could be!

Ken Esterly (Reading, 2022-01-08)


I am in the class of 1974. I believe that the Covid-19 shots, which are not vaccines, are dangerous. I worked for Pfizer for 30 years and have never seen the secrecy and attempts to conceal the problematic side effect profile that emerged even in the early stages of research. When the inventor of the technology is being censored for speaking out against the use, we are approaching a Nazi Germany like society. I got two Pfizer jabs, and was so happy not to get Moderna, as their shot is their 1st attempt at bringing therapy To the market place. I thought I was maybe going to die, 12 hours after getting the second shot. I was so concerned that at 2:00 AM when I began getting such severe shaking and teeth chattering for HOURS, that I sent my only child an email and listed all of my MANY symptoms/ side effects, saying if she were to discover my dead body , she would have a complete listing of my symptoms. I did not call an ambulance to go to an emergency room for fear that if I would have survived the shot, I might be exposed to people who already had Covid I said my prayers and left my fate in God’s hands. I was sick for 4 days.
I personally know a friend I’ve known since we were about 23 years old, whose only child got two shots and immediately went into a coma shortly after the second shot. She was in a coma for 3 months and the parents were advised that their beloved only child would need at home care for the rest of her life. The mom is a God fearing lady who didn’t turn bitter and thanked Jesus for the life of her child. The parents calculated that after while they would be forced to sell their family home to pay for the continuing medical need of their daughter. Then, a miracle like event happened and she woke up and was well enough to take a small celebratory trip with her parents.
I know of a friend in my Bible Study group, whose next door neighbor got his second shot and at age 52 died the next day. He had NO risk factors. I know that the rate of Covid reported by hospitals was faulty. My plumber’s wife works in the billing department at Sibley Memorial Hospital, in Washington DC, and she said that people who came in and died as a result of a fatal car crash, were counted as dying of Covid, when given a rapid test. This motivation to count this sort of trauma as a Covid death was purely a financial incentive, as the hospital could collect more money by claiming they had these Covid patients/ and deaths. I have many personal professional contacts who don’t believe in the safety or efficacy of the shots for current variants. Many studies have shown poor efficacy for Omicron. Very inexpensive therapeutic options have been used in India, Pakistan and in African countries with good success. I believe greed , and power are the motivation for FDA/ CDC pushing the idea of mandates. Pure corruption and greed. The Federal Government gets 1/3 of the profits of all the Moderna shots. Fauci and others are making millions. Please wake up and stop following corrupt pharmaceutical companies and corrupt civil servants. I pray for our students. When I worked for Pfizer, they were ethical leaders in the industry, but now 15 years later all the good professionals/ leaders are gone from the company. It has broken my heart to see the moral decay of a company I believed in and worked for, for 30 years. Please don’t let my heart be broken again, by my college.

Lynn Chandler Pivik (Bethesda, Maryland , 2022-01-08)


I am quite upset that my grandson is being forced into receiving the vaccine booster. The fact is that it is still not fully tested and the long term effects on young men will not be known for years

Ann Esterly (Reading, 2022-01-08)


Natural immunity needs to be recognized as a viable alternative to these boosters. There are risks associated with continuous boosters as well as having been diagnosed with Covid 19.

Shannon Hawkins (Fullerton , 2022-01-08)


I am a parent of a current student. The booster was struck down by the FDAs own panel of experts in an almost unanimous vote as being dangerous for those at low risk of severe disease or death by “covid”, which includes most Americans. The CDC abused its power and went against the FDA. The CDC is not a legislative body or another branch of our government. They are political “appointees” carrying out an agenda. These medical treatments (NOT vaccines), are NOT FDA approved like many have been misled to believe. They are under Emergency Use Authorization, as are the wearing of masks.
EUA products are by definition experimental and thus require the right to refuse. Under the Nuremberg Code, the foundation of ethical medicine, no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. Consent of the individual is “absolutely essential”. A federal court held that even the U.S. military could not “mandate” EUA vaccines to soldiers. Doe #1 v. Rumsfeld, 297 F.Supp.2d 119 (2003).

Title 21 U.S.C. 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(I-III) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act states:
Individuals to whom the (EUA) product is administered are informed —-
(I)that the Secretary has authorized the emergency use of the product;
(II)of the significant known and potential benefits and risks of such use, and of the extent to which such benefits and risks are unknown; and
(III)of the option to accept or refuse administration of the product, of the consequences, if any, of refusing administration of the product, and of the alternatives to the product that are available and of their benefits and risks.
Liability for forced participation in a medical experiment, including possible injury, may be incalculable. Myocarditis is one of many adverse events from these shots affecting male 18-40 year olds. They will live with this debilitating heart issue their entire lives as a result of the vaccine. The government Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) has reported thousands of adverse events and deaths. Please take a look.
BC must also stop the unnecessary routine and invasive probing, testing and swabbing of healthy asymptotic students. The risk of swab tips laced with ethylene oxide crossing the blood brain barrier should be a concern to all, and the constant stirring up bacteria in our nasal passages can CAUSE infection. There are lawsuits currently in place against CA and NYC public schools who have contracted with testing companies that have ties to the CCP. These companies have been taking the DNA samples of school children that are continually being collected by mandatory testing and using them for nefarious purposes.
We have to protect our students.
The Federal Government and Big Pharma have their tentacles in our Universities using our children as guinea pigs for profit. They may threaten funding if universities don’t comply with these lawless dictates. We have to stand up against this take over of our schools and universities.

Karen Koutsoubis (Rye, 2022-01-08)


A blanket Vaccine mandate is just simply wrong!!!

Kelly Shang (Stamford, 2022-01-08)


I'm a physicist and national COVID-19 expert. I'm also a BC 1968 grad. BC should be leading the way towards a science-based COVID-19 policy. Instead it is following political science. For extensive information on what Science says about COVID-19 see

John Droz (Morehead City, 2022-01-08)


My husband is an adjunct professor at BC. Natural immunity has proven to be more effective time and time again throughout history no matter what the pathogen. Covid is no different and if it's protection people are concerned about, those who have naturally acquired antibodies should be exempt from the vaccine mandates.

Kimberly Haugli (Shrewsbury, 2022-01-08)


The lack of discourse on Covid as well as other moral issues at Boston College is pathetic.
This defeats the whole purpose of “education”. Indoctrination has taken it’s place. This was not the BC I love and attended. (SOM 76). Did you notice how many people will not even give their names on this Petition, believing retribution may be coming their way? This is the same attitude among many current students attending BC today.

I have attended everyone of my reunions. Last year, belatedly, out of fear they postponed it. Fear is not a gift of the Holy Spirit. Their mandated protocols, made no mention of “following your conscience” the bottom line in Catholic teaching.

With police in attendance, the Alumni Association did their best to ruin the gathering. It was the lowest turnout of any reunion I ever attended at BC.

Why would any parent spend $60,000 + to send their child to be indoctrinated against their own conscience?

Boston College was meant to be a shinning light on a hill, not a purveyor of darkness.

Mandates are unconstitutional

Church teaching is clear that vaccinations must be voluntary based on an individual’s personal assessment in good conscience of the medical risks/benefits and morality of a particular vaccine

Paul Henkels (Philadelphia, 2022-01-08)


I am signing this petition because I am in full agreement with the above statements and in addition, I believe that all students should be allowed a religious and / or medical exemption for this vaccine mandate. A " one size fits all" mandate is by definition untrue. There are many extenuating circumstances that students have, and the decision to get the vaccine should be discerned and decided by each student, their parents and their medical providers. In addition, the research recently conducted by Harvard University and other researchers who look at Israel, other countries, colleges and universities, proves that high vaccination rates do not correlate with low infection rates. The vaccine manufacturers themselves attest to this fact that the Covid vaccines do not prevent getting Covid, nor stop the transmission of it. The Covid vaccines may help in decreasing the symptoms, but at what future cost to the health of each student that receives these "experimental" MRNA vaccines? One of the original inventors of MRNA Vaccines, Dr. Robert Malone, has beseeched the medical community to halt administration of these vaccines because the research proves that they are causing more variants. Not to mention the terrible adverse reactions and deaths that have occurred and been suppressed by the media, also as reported by a Harvard study on The VAERS vaccine injury and death reporting system, and the many doctors and researchers who refuse to be silenced, out of respect for humanity, adherence to their hippocratic oath, and devotion to serving God with their talents and truth. B.C. should reflect the God-given rights and abilities of each student and family to decide. This is a political issue, with the facade of a medical one. It is an outrage.

It’s unconstitutional

BC should not mandate vaccination without a true benefit to offset potential risks.

Arthur Desrosiers (West Barnstable, 2022-01-08)


Using your Freedom to choose, shouldn’t justify who has the right to an education.

Alexa Sumner (Melbourne , 2022-01-08)


Iatrogenic consequences should be taken into account and no longitudinal perspective studies concerning these treatments have yet to be published. My BC Ethics classes went into the full study of informed consent WITHOUT coercion and sadly we are now living this alarming reality.

Body sovereignty and freedom of healthcare choice are not optional.
The Nuremberg code still stands.
Be on the right side of history and roll back this medical tyranny. Leave the Boston University students in peace to go about their learning.

Jennifer Collins Brever (Fort Collins, 2022-01-09)


For a so-called Catholic university to have mandated these abortion-tainted shots in the first place is pure hypocrisy, but to take this further step in mandating boosters in spite of new data showing serious side-effects in this specific student population is reckless and irresponsible. You will reap what you sow.

Denise Fitzpatrick (Groton, 2022-01-09)


I believe the science is changing and currently there is no good science to support vaccine mandates or boosters anymore in colleges.

Andrea Golub (East Williston, 2022-01-09)

Tim Fitzgerald (Massapequa , 2022-01-09)


I’m signing because my cousins should not be forced to get the booster when we don’t know if it even works.

Celina Tachin (Rochester , 2022-01-09)


Because I stand for medical and religious freedoms and our civil liberties . I was forced to leave BC, the school I loved and worked hard to get into, as a rising sophomore because I couldn’t take the vaccine due to my private health history.

Carmine Pezzula (niskayuna, 2022-01-09)


You have not provided Informed Consent.
This is a violation of Common Law and the Nuremberg Code.

This mandate is being forced under duress and students are being compelled and coerced. You have violated their religious rights and bodily autonomy.

The vaccines have still not been approved by the FDA. EUA does not give organizations the right to mandate a vaccination.

The vaccines are ineffective. They do not prevent getting or spreading the virus.
The vaccines have caused death to thousands of people, and adverse reactions to hundreds of thousands.
You have not recognized natural immunity as an option. Natural immunity is 7-27 times more effective than vaccination.
Most college students are at an age that they have very little risk of death or hospitalization from the virus.
You have not provided any other treatment protocol that has shown to be effective.

Ryan Ness (WAYZATA, 2022-01-09)


My grandson, who is a sophomore at BC, was double vaccinated and also had Covid so he’s built up anti bodies. I agree with the professional doctors and immunologists along with my own doctor that the side effects, especially myocardial heart disease, and long term effects of boosters for a 19 year old is more dangerous then the risks of him getting or spreading Covid now.

William Pezzula (Albany, 2022-01-09)


Stop following JUNK SCIENCE AND DEBUNKED LIES. Vaccines DO not stop transmission per all the vax pushers (Fauci, CDC and Bill Gates). So what is your case for mandates?

TRAVIS E (Newton, 2022-01-09)


I’m signing as a concerned Catholic is support of a students rights

Wayne Redman (Old Greenwich , 2022-01-09)


My daughter had her two shots, had COVID, this has natural immunity and her risk factors are minimal.

Scott Thomas (Wildwood, 2022-01-09)


I have 2 grandchildren at BC. A sophomore and a senior. Both have already had Covid. The school should not be mandating a booster at this time. The unknown risks for young healthy students should not be overlooked.
