State University of New York COVID-19 Booster Mandate



I’m signing because this will decide if our son would attend college.

Michelle Sutton (Ontario, 2022-01-17)


I am a parent of a student who will not go back to campus until mandates are lifted. He has a life threatening allergy to the components of these vaccines . POLY ETHYL GLYCOL AND Polysorbate 80. As a healthcare worker myself weekly testing of asymptomatic people does not decrease the transmission of Covid.

Ellen Jenkins (Pelham, 2022-01-17)


I am against any and all health mandates. I support personal belief, philosophical, religious, and medical exemptions in the event that any should or do currently exist. Bodily autonomy is the undergirding of a truly bonded, liberated, vibrant community.

Constance Walsh (Tivoli, 2022-01-17)


I'm signing because.....these are bio weapons!
Not vaccines!! Protect our children!!

Shannon Kennedy (Syracuse, 2022-01-17)


I’m signing because no has a right to make a medical decision for anyone. And these are not vaccines, these are dangerous experiments.

Scott LaVallee (Pawling, 2022-01-17)


This is an unconstitutional and egregious governmental overreach. The entire narrative is based on lies and false statements. The 'vaccine ' does not prevent transmission.It IS shown to negatively affect health.

Kristan Wager (Syracuse , 2022-01-17)


My son doesn’t want the booster and suffered enough from the last 2 shots.
It should be CHOICE. The right to CHOOSE. Medical freedom over one’s health.

Melissa Fallon (Troy , 2022-01-17)


My son got vaccinated and has gotten COVID 3 times since, no more drugs are going to stop this from reoccurring. No need for the booster. If you’re that uncomfortable without the booster don’t send your kid to the school

Jennifer Ficarra (Ronkonkoma, 2022-01-17)


My son has gotten the J&J and had Covid over Christmas break. He got the shot to avoid testing now he has to test until he is eligible for a booster? Between the one shot and his Covid, he is good.

Michelle Dillon (Batavia , 2022-01-17)


I disagree with the coercion driven by profit to the pharma industry. There is more than enough proof that the vaccines are more dangerous than the virus in this demographic . This is a clear case of profit over human rights.

Heather Cornell (Holland, 2022-01-17)


I lost a very good job that I enjoyed at UPMC Chatauqua because Hochul said I'm not allowed to express my faith this way. The Bill of Rights says I have the right to worship God IN MY OWN WAY!

Michael Johnson (Allegany, 2022-01-17)


I do not agree with this experimental jab!

Alisha Meyer (Eden, 2022-01-17)



Gina Ayala (Hopewell junction , 2022-01-17)


Our kids don't need any emergency use vaccines when there are numerous therapeutic remedies. There are too many unknowns for this MRNA vaccine.

Verna Plummer (Ballston Spa , 2022-01-17)


I’m against booster mandates for college students ! We are not Guinea pigs !

Renea Pedrick (North Tonawanda, 2022-01-18)


i am signing to protect my son

Diane Trommer (West Islip, 2022-01-18)


Healthy individuals don’t need a booster!

Jill Ruffino (Lancaster, 2022-01-18)


These vaccines do not prevent transmission and are linked to multiple health problems.

Sarah Heidenreich (High Falls, 2022-01-18)


I believe in medical freedom and religious exemption

Lisa Sterer (Accord, 2022-01-18)


It’s not necessary. Especially after we just had Covid and already have vax.

Kerry Ruppert (Poughquag, 2022-01-18)


My daughter just wants to wait a year before injecting another thing in her body.

Maria Hecker (Bay Shore, 2022-01-18)


It violates students rights.

Linnette Ramos (Boqueron, 2022-01-18)


I am against the booster mandate as well as ALL mandates

Suzanne De Muccio Perri (Smithtown , 2022-01-18)


I'm concerned regarding the safety of these 'warp speed' gene therapy injections. As such, they should NOT be mandated. They also don't prevent infection or transmission.

Paula Bachinsky (Halfmoon, 2022-01-18)


Our health, our choice. No one should have the right to tell someone else what to do with their body!!

Maxwell Mead (Accord, 2022-01-18)


I strongly urge SUNY to be a leader in recognizing the needs of their students and faculty with regards to health and freedom.

nancy hoose (New Paltz, 2022-01-18)


Experimental injections go against the nuremberg code, the coercion is immoral and the mandates are overall inhumane.

Tamara Borella (Sound Beach, 2022-01-18)


I feel the student and parents should have a choice. My son is fully vaccinated and I do not think it’s necessary for him to get a booster

Traci LoGiudice (Bellmore , 2022-01-18)


The harm exceeds the benefits.

There were 3.7 million CV19 cases reported in USA under 18 years old, and 413 deaths reported from 1/1/20 to 8/7/21. The fatality rate is a non statistic.
There appears to be no rationale to vaccinate young adults, but in the contrary, with the mRNA vaccine there is a massive increase in blood clotting related to the spike proteins and red blood cells clustering in organs.
* According to data published data by the CDC, 99.99815% of children who contract COVID-19 survive.

* Children are not a significant threat to the elderly and vulnerable as most COVID cases are spread from adults to children.

* There are no long-term safety studies of mRNA covid vaccines because the placebo group was “unblinded” and allowed to get the vaccine.

* Moderna and J&J are NOT a FDA approved vaccine - the FDA has merely expanded the Emergency Use Authorization to include children as young as five. In other words, children are now receiving an experimental drug.

* Healthy young adults who have been given covid vaccines have experienced blood clots, myocarditis, neurologic symptoms and brain hemorrhage.

Shawn Delisio (Woodstock, 2022-01-18)


I refuse to be coerced into getting a booster shot that I do not need. I have complied in regards to vaccinations, I have contracted covid after vaccinations, and I have enough immunity in my physical body. I will not be bullied undertaking the booster shot.

Colleen Summerville (Youngstown, 2022-01-18)


I am signing because we are Americans and have the right to choose! Stop forcing students to take a shot that we don’t know the long term effects of!!! I support vaccines but not this one! I had the shot and I still got really really sick so I’m sick of hearing that it helps it doesn’t help with anything so thank you

Shiann Reed (Sedro Woolley , 2022-01-18)


This vaccine does not prevent any Covid. The kids are being put under severe pressure to ho yo school, this is sovwronhu

Lona Brooks (Binghamton, 2022-01-18)


Daughter is senior at Oswego. No mandates!!!!!!

Pepper Lisieski (Williamson , 2022-01-18)


These rapidly Covid shots do not prevent Covid and all people unknown who have gotten the booster have gotten Covid. Would you continue to take a bP med that doesn't work. Big Pharma is making 60,000 a MINUTE on these shots that do not prevent Covid or hospitalizations. An RN

Cynthia Roberts (Charlotte, 2022-01-18)


I'm signing because this is unconstitutional!!! Because my child is rightfully owed a quality education!! Because these shots DO NOT WORK!!

Annette Hoyt (Smithtown , 2022-01-18)


My daughter could not breathe after the 1st mandate. No one should be forced to do such things! It should be a choice. Especially since people who get the vaccine can still get the disease!

Rurh Chanowitz (Wallkill, 2022-01-18)


My daughter always wanted to be a nurse

Kristen Ryan (Hamburg, 2022-01-18)


I’m signing because my sister is a graduate of the SUNY schools and one day my children may choose a SUNY education.

Soheireh Meier (Philmont, 2022-01-18)


Freedom is the American way.

Jacqueline Smothers (Buffalo, 2022-01-18)


I was once a straight A student of Buff state and had to leave because of the mandate. It’s awful. Many people regret being forced and don’t want to continue with the shots. They shouldn’t have to put their health aside to get an education. It’s a well known fact that the shot doesn’t stop the spread so their is no logic reason to force it.

Angela Vullo (Lake View, 2022-01-18)


This is medically tyranny and needs to stop! You’re mandating something that clearly doesn’t work.

Erika Mihalics (Tonawanda, 2022-01-18)


Science and statistics show this age group is not at serious risk from the current variant. There are no long term studies available to justify additional boosters for low risk individuals. In addition, possible heart issues for males long term are unknown. Science also shows better immunity from infection from Covid and mild cases of Omicron would benefit further immunity from other variants.

Michael Savino (Manorville , 2022-01-18)


So many reasons! It’s wrong on all fronts!!

Elizabeth Cafarella (Cheektowaga , 2022-01-18)


My son is vaccinated and recently recovered from Covid. He should not be force to risk another shot in order to continue his education.

Julie Perreault (Lewiston , 2022-01-18)


My girlfriend is required to get the booster shot at Buffalo State college. She already received the first two doses of Pfizer and doesn’t want to get the booster. She has already had covid-19.

John Rafferty (East Amherst, 2022-01-18)


I'm signing this because I'm an American and so are my kids. And it's our right to have a choice.

Amanda Zielinski (Corfu, 2022-01-18)


My niece and nephew attend UB and this policy is out of line with recommendations from the WHO on young healthy individuals, especially those whom have recently recovered from COVID! By enforcing this policy, SUNY is doing the opposite of protecting its student base, and is rather forcing them to participate in a potentially very dangerous experiment.

Lori Elliott (Rio Verde, 2022-01-18)


The vax and booster should be a choice honoring our constitutional rights!!

Linda Becker (Lancaster, 2022-01-18)


Vaccination should not be mandated for the experimental medical treatment

Igor Poteroba (Amawalk, 2022-01-18)


My child feels like she is being forced to get the shot against her will. She took the first 2 shots. Got very ill for a week after each shot. Just one week ago she caught covid despite "vaccinated". And they will still force her to get the booster so she can get an educate WE are paying for. An education that she has a right to.

Erin Clelan (Silver Creek, 2022-01-18)


Many have died or suffered debilitating illness due to the experimental gene edited injection. It is also wrecking havoc on the body’s natural immune system. College students are not at high risk of death from COVID-19 so obviously there is another agenda going on. Not a conspiracy-a fact! Therefore I support this petition and others that push this agenda.

Debra Douglass (Canajoharie, 2022-01-18)


In the science and practice of medicine this is a medically deficient agenda. This is against our rights to in force what has been unlawfully imposed.

Arthur Fiorella (Amawalk, 2022-01-18)


Three of my grand children attend college. Two at UB. They are double vaccinated and have both just recovered from Covid - both of them!
So why another useless vax?

I beg you decision makers to do your homework regarding this mandate and massive destruction of personal freedoms - please.

Maureen Schug (Lewiston , 2022-01-18)


I’m signing because there should not be a mandate. Disagree with booster requirement.

Beth Draper (Orchard Park, 2022-01-18)


My son had a bad reaction to the vaccination and I don’t want him to get the booster.

Jodi Martin (Lewiston, 2022-01-18)


My daughter goes to UB. I’m concerned for her health.

Scott Emerling (Orchard Park , 2022-01-18)


Booster's, in addition to the prior vaccines, will further impact, weaken, damage our youth.

Vincent Costantino (Centereach, 2022-01-18)


I’m signing as a SUNY Plattsburgh alumni. Stop the mandates!

Korri Fleming (New Russia, 2022-01-18)


These mandates are very wrong !

Jessica Churton (Stanfordville , 2022-01-18)


Im a student and i believe there should be informed consent on major health decisions such as these. There are valid questions to be asked and hesitancy should not be seen as a sin. Youre hesitant about the foods you eat why should you not be about something youre stabbing into your body. If the government actually cared about your health theyd let you make the cost benefit analysis yourself, that or theyd tell you to go outside and be healthy. Disgusting that the money trail has invaded its way this far

Ryan Pinto (Goshen, 2022-01-18)


My son is being forced to make a decision to unnecessarily risk his health by getting the booster in order to continue his education. Moat at risk population least reward no studies post COVID

Tara Kouril (Cortlandt Manor , 2022-01-18)


This Vaccine should not be mandatory for students to attend school. Shame on you.

Alexis Fields (Smithtown, 2022-01-18)


Think this should be choice not mandate like other schools.

heidi indelicato (lancaster , 2022-01-18)


Stop the mandates! Stop the madness! These injections do NOT stop you from getting or transmitting!! What they DO do is harm people!! Stop!!

Lisa Chrysler (Altamont, 2022-01-18)


I am a FORMER graduate student of UB because of the vaccine mandate. I will not support an institution that forces a new vaccine that has not even been proven to prevent the virus. UB should allow all students and staff freedom of CHOICE on whether or not they receive the Covid-19 vaccine especially since they pride themself on diversity and no discrimination based upon race, religion, and sexual orientation. Unvaccinated people should NOT be discriminated against!

Meredith Phelps (Lewiston, 2022-01-19)


My son attends UB and I feel it is absolutely unnecessary for a healthy 18 year old, who is already vaccinated with 2 shots of the Covid vaccine, has already had Covid AND has to wear a mask on campus, to need a THIRD vaccine. He also commutes so he is not staying on campus.

Shirley Drew (Alden, 2022-01-19)


I’m signing because the risk associated with the vaccine for this age group outweighs the benefit.

Katia Hellert (East Amherst, 2022-01-19)


The vaccine and booster do not stop the spread. College students are typically healthy and this additional dose is not necessary and have the ability to harm some college students.

Andrea Rotella Diez (LEWISTON, 2022-01-19)

Kristy O'Neill-Dafoe (Warners, 2022-01-19)



Nicole Klausz (Poughquag , 2022-01-19)


My 2 sons and my husband are forced to take the vaccine and now booster, to keep their job of over 20 years and to continue their education. We have all had Covid, have natural immunity, we are all healthy and should not be forced, coerced to make this decision!!!

Laura Baker (Newark Valley, 2022-01-19)


I’m signing this because the shits aren’t working and doing nothing but harm.

Barbara Caputo (Bayville, 2022-01-19)


I am signing this petition because. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! When does this stop?!? The poor kids have already been vaccinated and now you want them to inject their bodies yet again? How many more until they are done?
I believe in Medical freedom! If they want it let them do it but don’t force them
