Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey was one of the first schools to mandate vaccines for all students attending.
According to student Logan Hollar, he is also required to get the vaccine, despite being an online student.
“I’m not in an at-risk age group. I’m healthy and I work out. I don’t find COVID to be scary,” Hollar told NJ.com. “If someone wants to be vaccinated, that’s fine with me, but I don’t think they should be pushed.”
According to Hollar, he did not expect the vaccine mandate to apply to him since he was not a residential student.
NJ.com reports that “Hollar said he checked his Rutgers email without issue in the beginning of August and he successfully switched out of a class on Aug. 6.” Soon, he was required to fill out a questionnaire about the vaccine.”
“After submitting the survey, I got no pop-up indication that I still needed the vaccine — like I had seen in the past — and since I was online and the survey said I was all set, I assumed the emails in my inbox pertaining to (the vaccine) must apply to in-person students,” Hollar said.
According to the Gateway Pundit, when Hollar went to pay his tuition bill on August 27 he was locked out of his university email and other accounts.
Hollar was informed that he would need to get vaccinated to have his accounts restored and continue his education, unless he obtained an exemption letter from a doctor.
“Days later, I called back since I hadn’t received anything. They told me that unfortunately, they had decided that they would not grant waivers for anyone who had put in for them past Aug. 23, even though I was told that I could get one with no problem on the 27th.”
Hollar’s stepfather, Keith Williams, gave a comment to NJ.com about what is going on.
“I believe in science, I believe in vaccines, but I am highly confident that COVID-19 and variants do not travel through computer monitors by taking online classes,” Williams said, noting that he is vaccinated.
“He chose to remove himself from an on-campus experience so he would not need to be vaccinated,” Williams said. “Now to be removed and shut down from his Rutgers email and online classes during the start of his senior year seems a bit crazy.”
As of now, Hollar believes he may have to transfer to another school.
