State University of New York COVID-19 Booster Mandate
#801I’m signing because our daughter is considering colleges outside of NYS solely for this reason.
Michele Fronczak (Clarence, 2022-01-19)
#806Covid vaccines and boosters: ALL RISK - NO REWARD, especially for college aged students.
Susan Ziwot (Bernardsville, 2022-01-19)
#811The virus is 98% survivable!!!! Omicron almost done. Why r we injecting healthy kids !!!’ No more. The solution is worse then the virus itself. My body. My choice.
Mary Hannon (Buffalo, 2022-01-19)
#813I am a SUNY alumni and have close friends who are parents to a current enrolled student at SUNY ESF.
Eric Coyne (Syracuse , 2022-01-19)
#814I only got the vaccine because I needed it for school, I didn’t want to get it at all. I don’t want to just keep getting shots I’m done
Ahlyna Nergelovic (Port ewen , 2022-01-19)
#817Knowing that the vaccines along with the booster have little to no effect on the virus, there is no logical reason to force it upon the students, threatening them with their right to education. We know there’s a chance it can cause an adverse effect. It’s still in trial phases which means it’s still experimental and violates the Nuremberg code by using coercion. At this point it should be informed personal choice.
Stephanie Heinz (Goshen, 2022-01-19)
#819Stop mandates, pro choice
Amy Fox (Tonawanda, 2022-01-19)
#822The vaccine should be a choice. Joe Biden sucks as a president. 🤘
Patrick Sellen (Minoa, 2022-01-19)
#824I have a son who is vaccinated and just got over Covid.
Kelly green (Elma, 2022-01-19)
#828Although it is being largely ignored and going largely under reported, there is ample data available to raise major safety concerns regarding the COVID-19 vaccines, still under a study in clinical trial. There’s no logical reason to predict that the boosters will be any different. Data shows Omicron variant, although highly transmissible is mild. Vaccinated individuals are transmitting SARS-CoV2 , coming out with the virus and being diagnosed with major, previously diagnosed health issues. all of these points in the gate negate any logical reason to put your students and staff at risk for significant long-term, possibly life-threatening, health effects.
Come to your senses, find your integrity, and refuse mandating the boosters for individuals in your schools.
Amy Stoltz (Rocheater, 2022-01-20)
#829My children are in this age group and i very strongly agree with this petition.
Sandy Cabrera (East Islip, 2022-01-20)
#830I do not agree with the poster mandate for students
JENNIFER FLEMING (Lake View, 2022-01-20)
#832These college kids & ALL kids and people should have a choice and NOT to be forced to get any type of shot / vaccine into their body that they don’t want or need !!! This mandate needs to END ! As a parent I believe in education for all without limiting our further children because they choose to not get vaccinated period ! This is the land of the free Not some communist country .. we are the USA for gods sake let’s start acting like the amazing country we are and Stop this Mandate once & for all !! It’s your body your right your choice ! These are our children who are innocent and smart and deserve a chance at life through freedom not communism !
sally james (commack , 2022-01-20)
#833Enough is enough, we are exposing our children to harmful, potentially lethal side effects of this experimental drug. Stop the madness!
Lorie Shur (Webster, 2022-01-20)
#835I am a parent and My two daughters are currently students at FIT NYC and have complied with the Covid vaccine mandate. Booster should mot be a requirement for. The spring semester.
Suzanne Colton (Palm Beach Gardens , 2022-01-20)
#837I certainly believe that the booster COVID VACCINE should not be mandatory.
We already complied with the COVID 19 vaccine for my son.
Sandra Perkins (Corning , 2022-01-20)
#839I feel that this is a personal and parental choice and should not be forced by a mandate.It's unconstitutional.
Maryellen Rattazzi (Huntington Station, 2022-01-20)
#840These young healthy people do not need this Vaccine. Their risk of Covid injury is next to zero.
Their risk of vax injury is unclear and there is evidence trickly out that it could be harmful.
Additionally the VACINE DOES NOT PREVENT TRANSMISSION!
Sheila Cecil (Scarsdale, 2022-01-20)
#841My daughter is a student (senior) at SUNY Stony Brook. Complied with receiving the 2 shots and is now experiencing heart palpitations and contracted covid over the Christmas holiday and has the antibody test results indicating this
James Cupo (Monroe, 2022-01-20)
#846The evidence is not transparency. The lobbying has too much influence. To look much conflict of influence. My daughter’s future health and her childrens health. The future is more important than the past
Mollie Barnett (East Northport, 2022-01-20)
#847I have a freshman who has received 2 vacs and just got covid and I don't feel comfortable letting her get a booster since she is less than 15days positive
Nektaria Xynidakis (Briarcliff Manor, 2022-01-20)
#848There is no evidence these boosters work in prevention or spread of covid 19 and there is no reason to increase health risk in our young adults.
Anna Panopoulos (Whitestone , 2022-01-20)
#849We must protect the children from tyranny
Nancy Lavelle (Hicksville New York, 2022-01-20)
#851These mandates for this age group is absolutely unnecessary. We already complied with the first set of shots and now a booster. When is this going to stop.
They are healthy young adults who don't need a booster.
Gallery John (Nesconset , 2022-01-20)
#858I do not believe there should be a student mandate when the faculty is not held to the same mandates.
Drusilla Giovenco (Ontario, 2022-01-21)
#860I am a student
Kaya Umar (Williamsville , 2022-01-21)
#862This terrifies me there are awful side affects from these vaccines
Shari Mitchell (Marshfield, 2022-01-21)
#863Mandates are not laws. There should not be a booster mandate to get an education.
Tania Gullo (Brooklyn, 2022-01-21)
#868Universities took federal funds and in turn they have to carry out the govt, and big Pharmas agenda until at least 2023.
Our children are the guinea pigs for profit.
Karen Koutsoubis (Rye, 2022-01-21)
#872My son is in category 1, had Covid April 2021 and has the two Pfizer shots. He has the appropriate immunity to attend in person and live in the dorms
Jennifer Bahrenburg (South Huntington , 2022-01-21)
#873Enough with adding more and more poison into our bodies. It hasn’t stopped anything.
Christa Cajowski (Huntington Station, 2022-01-21)
#877This booster requirement is excessive.
Elena Emmendorfer (Buffalo, 2022-01-21)
#880Stop ALL MANDATES. The CDC & Pfizer have acknowledged the vaccine has little to no efficacy.
Jodi Basha (Ft. Lauderdale, 2022-01-21)
#881The cdc came out with a study yesterday showing natural immunity is effective
The vaccine (in this case the booster) do not prevent the catching or transmission of covid
Jessica Laforge (Stony Brook, 2022-01-21)
#884The health of my grandson is in jeopardy
Tom Donnelly (Ossining, 2022-01-21)
#886SUNY cannot justify these mandates based on SCIENCE or LOGIC or LAW or ETHICS -- let alone all 4 which should be the standard. Please IMMEDIATELY PROVIDED SPECIFIC JUSTIFICATION FOR YOUR MANDATE! If it's simply because your are getting federal $$ for forcing mandates, you know that's illegal and immoral and so do we. We intend to hold people accountable. Do the right thing.
TRAVIS EBEL (Newton, 2022-01-21)
#888I don’t feel like we should be forced to put anything in our bodies
Aidan Kelly (Smithtown , 2022-01-21)
#889My 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
Kevin Kouril (Cortlandt Manor , 2022-01-21)
#895I also have concerns over side effects the booster may cause to young students . I don’t want mandates of busters there or any other state .
Tetyana Newkirk (Spring , 2022-01-22)
#896Members of my own family have sustained heart damage secondary to this vaccine; I fail to understand why a cohort that's at an infinitesimally small risk with a high level of natural immunity is being targeted for forced boosters. As a RN, MSN with a background in research, the current data simply do not support your directives. Where there is risk, there must be choice.
CHRISTY BLACK (APO AE, 2022-01-22)
#897There are to many unknowns and the shots being given are still the EUA shots not the FDA approved vaccine.
Eric Daniels (Binghamton, 2022-01-22)
#900This mandate is a complete overreach of power and students should not be forced to compromise themselves or their beliefs to receive an education. As an alumni I’m horrified and disappointed.
Erin Saposnick (Holbrook , 2022-01-22)
#905I am a SUNY Geneseo Alumni with a junior at RPI. I am very concerned for the reasons you listed.
Patty Carluccio (Bedford, 2022-01-22)
#912It’s Asinine that these students are being forced to inject their bodies with a “vaccine”. What happened to my body my choice??
Julie Celano (Grand island , 2022-01-22)
#914My children’s health and bodily autonomy is more important than their education.
Tracey Trombley (Saranac, 2022-01-22)
#917Freedom of choice over our bodies
Plus it falls under Nuremberg code
It’s illegal and isn’t working
Amanda pannenbacker (Wading River, 2022-01-22)
#918End the madness. There is no benefit and no need to boost young people.
Michelle Kavanaugh (East Aurora, New York, 2022-01-22)
#919My son will be entering college soon and I refuse to inject him with any experimental “supplement” to make rich people even richer.
Kelli Nicholson (West Seneca, 2022-01-22)
Shannon Mederski (Alden, 2022-01-22)
#922NY is over stepping it's authority as usual. This is becoming a sickening trend.
Knox Mark (Williamsville, 2022-01-22)
#923I love my kids
Vohwinkel Taryn (Akron, 2022-01-22)
#926I don’t believe in forced vaccinations of an experimental nature. Those w natural immunity should be recognized
Allison Feng (Tonawanda, 2022-01-22)
#928They don’t need it!
Kimberly Giachinta (Cold Spring, 2022-01-22)
#938You should not have to be forced to get a shot that no one knows the long term effects of to get a college education!
Angela Janiga (Alden, 2022-01-22)
#942They should have a choice whether to be injected with an experimental drug or not.
Cheryl Ritter (Elma, 2022-01-22)
#944My daughter is attending college in the fall, and I do not believe this is necessary.
Kristen Leiker (Akron, 2022-01-22)
#947Covid 19 vaccine should be parental choice. Not mandated.
Lindsay Strohmenger (Lancaster , 2022-01-22)
#949This shot does not mean the definition of a vaccine. The virus it doesn't prevent is 99.98% survivable. Children are not the shields of adults. We are aware this is all a ploy to receive funds from all the printed money being printed due to the cheating, lying, conniving, administration.
Lisa Miller (Buffalo, 2022-01-22)
#951Mandates to put something inside your body are communism.
Roberta Troy (Hamburg, 2022-01-22)
#954Students should not be forced to choose between an education and a potentially harmful medical procedure for a virus that they have a 99+ percent chance of surviving. It is unethical and immoral and the people who support this should be ashamed of themselves as well as prepared to see a mass exodus of our young adults in this state.
Mary Dettelis (Lancaster, 2022-01-22)
#956I can not finish my degree at ECC due to this!
Annie Burns (Niagara Falls, 2022-01-22)
#957Vaccine and boosters should be a personal decision/ choice NOT a mandate. This is too new to know side effects and people should be able to wait for trials to be done to see what outcome is.
Becker Anna (Buffalo, 2022-01-22)
#960Mandates are not laws. There is no long term research about how the vaccine affects anyone. Coercion ( take this vaccine/booster) or you can't go to school) is illegal.
NAncy Ogorek (Buffalo, 2022-01-22)
#971Everyone should have a right to decide what goes in their body and they have not been shown to stop getting it or spreading it.
Gretchen Huttenlocker (Hamburg, 2022-01-22)
#975Quite frankly, I am embarrassed to admit I received my masters degree from the University at Buffalo. The covid narrative it's been promoting since the beginning of this pandemic goes completely against everything I learned in my graduate studies including interpreting statistics & scientific studies, educational theories, and critical thinking. SUNY is strong arming students, faculty, & staff into following their vaccine agenda when it's clear that natural immunity is more effective against the virus and there are also proven, highly efficacious therapeutics to treat anyone who still happens to catch it. Until SUNY recognizes this reality, stop asking me to donate to my alma mater.
Jill Winiatowskk (West Seneca, 2022-01-22)
#977No one should be forced to make a medical decision or be denied education. Coercion is wrong. Students should be provided equal opportunity for their education. Requiring a mandate is discrimination.
Dawn Kelly (Mahopac, 2022-01-22)
#981I am a United States citizen and believe in freedom
Jackie Garcia (Buffalo, 2022-01-22)
#982This is not following any logic or science leave our children alone
Melanie Gabel (North tonawanda , 2022-01-22)
#984Mandatory boosters for education are irresponsible.
Meghana Lottes (Honeoye Falls, 2022-01-22)
#985I oppose mandates for students
Craig DeRosa (Mahopac , 2022-01-22)
#987I believe In medical freedom
Shannon M Connors (Lancaster, 2022-01-22)
#992Schools should not be coordinating not advising not mandating medical advice, and we should be able to choose medical care for ourselves. This should be aatter between an individual and their doctor.
Vicki Eberle (Sanborn, 2022-01-22)
#998Enough is enough with this vaccine!
Hana Smith (Canandaigua, 2022-01-23)
#999I'm a concerned parent.
Stacy Bingenheimer (Angola, 2022-01-23)
#1000Overstepping government using coercion with this young population that has a 99.97% chance of surviving Covid 19. Many of these young adults have strong immunity plus the previous coerced shot. Leave the young people alone. This should be medical choice and only given if adults at risk decide to get it. Stop this. You will loose students from SUNY and even worse, young people will leave this state. If this continues they should leave SUNY and this state.
Kara Trippi (Fredonia’s , 2022-01-23)
