UMASS (STATEWIDE) COVID-19 BOOSTER MANDATE OPPOSITION
#1I believe in medical freedom.
Marah Hoffman (Bethesda, )
#2My daughter is low risk, and she is double vaccinated less than 6 months ago. Vaccine mandates are wrong. It is not your job to make these mandates over our bodies.
Megan Ford (Littleton, )
#4Have natural immunity
Aralee Sullivan (East Hampton, )
#7We are not interesting in playing russian ruoulette with endless boosters, especially with scientifically documented higher risk of cardiovascular and thrombotic adverse effects, specifically for this age group!
Claudia Starkey (MARSHFIELD, )
#8Over 20,000 people have died and one million people have been injured from these covid 19 vaccines! Despite the 40 plus harmful ingredients in these vaccines!
Laurie Siddall (Rehoboth, )
#13It is everyone’s right to make health decisions on their own.
Donna Mead (Thorndike, )
#14It is clear vaccine mandates are not preventing the spread of the virus and the vaccine should only be used for personal protection as directed by a medical professional for each individuals unique medical situation.
Anthony Boschetto (Framingham, )
#20Students should not be mandated to get this, or need to have boosters. Medical freedom is important
stacey mosley (HOLDEN, )
#23Young men & women should not be mandated for these so called vaccines! They do not work & can cause irreparable damage!
Angela Hull (Taunton , )
#29This is absurd. You're going to mandate a booster shot for a variant that is not at all slowed down by the booster?!?! Never mind the fact that kids of college age are at statistically zero risk from the virus. If Omicron is highly contagious but not threatening, let's let it go and be done with Covid!! Flu vax mandates next?!?!
Peter Ott (Stow, )
#31I support his petition because I'm pro-science.
I support medical freedom and encourage all within the UMASS community who would like boosters for personal health reasons to get them in consultation with their trusted medical professional according to their INDIVIDUAL health profiles.
However, the science (now irrefutable in Jan 2022) tells us that experimental booster injections — which are NOT FDA-Approved because the FDA-Approved Comirnaty vaccines are NOT being offered in Massachusetts — have no benefit to the coerced UMASS "mandatee" students/employees nor to the UMASS community, because these injections are PROVEN to NOT stop transmission, and it is widely agreed by doctors, NIH, and CDC that they are NOT effective against Omicron (which is now widely circulating but was not as of the UMASS 12/8/21 mandate).
These medically unnecessary injections have no benefits, and only have potential risks - as outlined by Dr. Hooman Noorchashm, MD, PhD, Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID, NIH, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, CDC, and the FDA, and further outlined in 140+ scientific articles which are cataloged here: https://www.rwmalonemd.com/references
Thank you for following SCIENCE (not politics or refuted legacy disinformation). We all *wish* the vaccines would have stopped transmission, but that narrative has now been 100% debunked as of January 2022.
Thank you for protecting our students by eliminating *ALL* UMASS C19V mandates.
P.S.: 👉🏾 Please PROVE ME WRONG by providing a single location in Massachusetts where the public can receive the ACTUAL FDA-Approved vaccine, branded COMIRNATY (NOT a similar "formulation" but the ACTUAL FDA-Approved Drug). If UMASS cannot provide any sources for the FDA-Approved drug COMIRNATY, you have been mandating experimental drugs, and I am hereby putting Administrators and the Board of Trustees on notice: You have been mandating EXPERIMENTAL DRUGS WHICH ARE PROVEN TO HAVE RISK OF HARM as noted in 140+ scientific articles delivered to you above. You can no longer justify mandates based on science, nor logic, nor ethics.
P.P.S.: Please take note of the international Nuremberg laws which many in this community believe will be determined to be applicable to mandating experimental drugs to retain our pre-COVID freedoms. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and you are formally on notice. Please advise yourselves: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Code
TRAVIS EBEL (Newton, )
#33I agree with all that is stated on this form. I oppose any vaccine mandate that disadvantages any group of people including but not limited to the religious and the minority.
Sarah Hepburn (Granville, )
Alexander Moschella (Arlington MA, )
#36Body autonomy applies everywhere - or nowhere. My body my choice should be sacred. Plus we all know the vaxcînes are not truly vaccines. Gene therapy experiments should not be happening to any American or world citizen.
Ann Rein (Hanson, )
#37The mandates are not legal and detrimentally affecting the educational system in this state and country.
Linda Tolman (S Yarmouth, )
#48This is unconstitutional
Jane Cournan (Pembroke, )
#50It is dangerous, irresponsible and “anti” science, morally and ethically wrong.
Above and beyond that, it is unconstitutional.
Danielle Hutchinson (Whitinsville , )
#52These Mandates are completely unnecessary and an overreach!
Mary Lyons (Wayland, )
#54Young people are at very low risk with a very high survive ability rate. I believe in the bodies ability to heal itself! Don’t try to fix something that works very well when treated and fed properly!
Susan Curll (Concord , )
#58Thank you for this petition! I believe in medical choice! Please suspend the Booster mandate!
Lynne M (Newton, MA , )
#61I haven't gotten covid yet I recieved 2 shots. I do not need booster. I wear my mask and I take my precautions.
Elizabeth Santos (Roxbury, )
#65Where there is risk there must be choice. This is a experimental shot and you can still get and transmit Covid whether you’ve had the shot or not.
Joey Levin (Natick, )
#72No one should be forced to take an experimental intervention against their will in order to attend college . I
Linda Moran (Chelmsford, )
#76The madness needs to stop. These young adults have virtually no risk from covid 19. I cannot believe that esteemed universities who should have a wealth of intelligent professors who should be taking the time to dissect studies. They’re readily available for your perusal. Do some research.
Tricia Cullen (Cary, )
#77Because tyranny, especially medical tyranny/ apartheid, has NO place in America or any free society. Where there is risk, there must ALWAYS be choice and these shots are under EUA ONLY, are experimental with no accurate and truthful safety, efficacy or long term data. It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL to mandate under these parameters and is in direct violation of Federal laws to do so.
Rebecca Hamilton (Groveland, )
#83Informed consent, without coercion, is a cornerstone of medical ethics and human rights. These mandates constitute coercion.
Edward Stamas (Easthampton, )
#84I'm signing because no should have to take an experimental treatment that has failed to stop infection and transmission and has the highest rate of problems of any so called vaccine ever. Early treatment is the answer, not never ending jabs.
Michelle Sztabor (Woonsocket , )
#85My son is a Junior at UMass Amherst. He is double vaxxed and got COVID in November. The booster would only be a danger.
Cynthia Morningstar (Hopkinton, )
#87I'm signing because Item 1 applies to my son and mandates like this are unconstitutional at this point. Enough Is Enough And I Do Not Support Idiocy
David Moschella (Lexington, )
#88My son has enough vaccine in him and he continues to test with antibodies from exposure.
Rosalina Piazza (Wilmington, )
#91In UK, the covid infection rates among the vaccinated now exceed the unvaxxed in every age group over 30
Juan Yeap (Ukiah, )
#93I am deeply concerned that my son, who is a healthy young male, could have adverse effects from this booster. He is not at highly risk and should not be getting this vaccine. He can make these decisions with the advice from his personal doctor.
Tracy Mcenaney (Mendon , )
#96It is criminal and illegal to require an experimental vaccine(EUA authorized) in order to attend a college. They are breaking federal laws on experimental medical products and students have statistically zero risk of covid, but all the risks of the gene therapy jab. It also had been shown repeatedly that these jabs don't prevent infection, therefore there is no logical reason to require them.
Kimberly Gower-Hall (Windham, )
#97I do not want to see the health and immune systems of UMass college students destroyed by illegally mandating ineffective, unsafe, experimental mRNA/DNA-vector EUA vaccines in violation of the Nuremberg code and COVID vaccine mandates in violation of Federal law, Title 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(e)(1)(A)(ii)(I-III) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
Kathy Dopp (Natick, )
#100I don’t think it is fair to mandate the booster to these young adults.
Cynthia Bistany (Methuen , )
#105I am signing this because I feel the vaccine should be a choice not forced especially since we now know the vaccine does not prevent one from getting or spreading the virus especially the Omicron variant which affecting everyone regardless of vaccine status. The vaccine has become more of a therapy to keep people out of the hospital with severe disease not a way to herd immunity. And this age group is not a high risk group; many have natural immunity.
Danielle Taber (Ashaway, )
#106Vaccine requirements are non-constitutional and violate human rights. Everyone should have the choice what is (and isn’t) injected into their body.
Jeremy Marks (Newton, )
#113I am a graduate of UMASS and will not give another dime until you stop forcing young, healthy adults to be part of an experimental shot!!!! IT"S WRONG!!!!!
Helen Brady (Concord, )
#115As a parent of a UMass student who is Covid recovered and now with a robust immune system, tested positive for antibodies, the booster is obsolete! This mandate has no validity! These are young, healthy students! I’m adamantly opposed to any mandate that takes away an individual’s right to make their own decisions for their body and health.
Liz Weiss (South Jersey, )
#117I believe that everyone should have the freedom to make there own medical decisions. To me, this is my constitutional right.
Patricia Whalen (Pittsburgh , )
#125I am signing because I do not want my son to be forced to get the booster. He reacted to the vaccines and they are proving to not be reliable.
Kim Bayne (Rocklin, )
#134This mandate is unconstitutional. We have the freedom to make our own medical decisions.
Celina Ferreira (Mckinleyville, )
#139I’m a concerned parent.
Michelle Mirowski (Weymouth , )
#141There is no proof these boosters stop the spread of Covid, we also do not know what all of these shots are doing to our kids bodies. Please make it optional especially for those kids who cannot get any vaccines!
Jennifer Lovett (Arlington , )
#146Because my son attend UMB and I have serious concerns regarding any future jabs. He has had covid so there should be no reason to add more poision.
Dawn Merriman (Holland, )
#149No one healthy needs a booster and there is no long term data on these shots.
Kerry Evans (Medfield , )
#151The mandates are wrong for too many reasons for me to list here. The vaccines are still in an experimental phase, and people are not being given the full truth about the vaccines
Susan Agricola (Wrentham, )
#153I am against mandates for anyone, but particularly children and young adults who are healthy and at near zero risk for hospitalization or death from Covid-19. The risks of a vaccine on an EUA that has not been fully studied and with potential side effects that have not been made fully transparent (e.g. myocarditis in young males) far outweigh the risks to this population from Covid.
Erin Kramer (Kingston, )
#155Shots & boosters are not only unnecessary - especially for college aged kids - but dangerous.
Jennifer Birch (Boston, )
#156I'm signing this petition because being a former faculty member (208-2010), I'm so sick of seeing what the schools are putting the students (and frankly all the staff and faculty), through that has no basis in science and has great potential physical harm to the students. Please put a stop to more mandates and like a good research university kindly do the required research, the kind that is not laced with special interests, conflicts of interests and breaks so many international and constitutional laws.
Norman Bolter (Montague, )
#157I am an Alumni of UMASS Amherst and am appalled at the turn this University has taken. I have four children and will never allow them to attend
Lori MacLeod (Woburn, )
#163Because how many booster shots before life can return to normal? 1,2,3 10? Enough.
Allison McGoldrick (Boston , )
#171I believe in freedom of choice.
Scott Rothman (Manhattan, )
#173We have children looking to transfer to UMass for next year, and will not pay tuition to a school that will mandate blindly a booster with no concern for individual situations.
Kristin Bradley (Hopkinton, )
#181I am a UMass Boston alumni and I would never have been able to graduate if these inhumane, illogical and unlawful mandates were required during my time as a student. Everything I was taught there as a student, is contradictory to this mandatory requirement.
Michelle Efendi (Randolph, )
#182Our freedom is at stake. Nobody should be forced an injection of any kind to get an education.
Laurel Hedden (Abbeville, )
#183I’m signing because I think medical mandates are unconstitutional.
What happened to My Body, My Choice???
Adrian Gilmore (Boston, )
#184As an alumni of this school, I would like to go on record with my opposition to this mandate. Forcing medical decisions for others is unethical and is against the ethic of UMASS.
Rokia Paone (Danvers, )
Taylor Moore (Southborough, )
#187I am signing because these vaccines: (i) are experimental; (ii) have caused thousands of deaths and adverse reactions; (iii) are not effective in stopping transmission of Covid; (iv) may weaken the body's natural immunity; and (v) are manufactured by drug companies that are shielded from liability and in the case of Pfizer and J&J has long criminal records for malfeasance towards the public. Moreover, it is now apparent that vaccinated individuals are getting Covid in huge numbers.
Daniel Seitz (Great Barrington, )
#189I'm signing because my daughter got the first vaccine under the impression that she would be all set. She didn't want to take it, but felt like she had to in order to have a fairly normal year of school. This booster is yet another poison to add to her system. More and more unexplained sudden deaths are occurring from fully vaccinated individuals. I fear for her safety and her health in the long run. She has 6 more years of schooling and cannot be subject to this every time it is determined another booster is due.
Shelly Bernardini (Bellingham , )
#191Since 'breakthrough' cases have been recorded in Mass 40% of cases and 40% of deaths have been vaccinated, those numbers are getting much worse with Omicron - The covid vaccine is approaching negative efficacy - 65% of cases in Massachusetts were 'breakthrough' last week, and trending up (link below to where I breakdown the numbers, please share far and wide), this age group is not at risk at all, and men in this target age group are at risk of myocarditis which compounds with every shot and medical mandates are unconstitutional, we as a society have lost our collective minds.

Garret Holland (Charlton, )
#193Govt should not dictate what goes into a person’s body and trample a person’s right to bodily autonomy.
Cara Holland (Charlton, )
#194These shots are irrelevant!! Also, most now have natural immunity
Joce Brady (Middleboro, )
Carol Read (Mashpee, )
#199I will never donate another penny to UMass. Get all alumni and students to stop donating.
Mary Casey (Winchester,MA, )
#200These mandates are ridiculous. These vaccines are emergency use only.
Ann Crawford (Lynnfield , )
