Score a victory for patient rights and evidence-based medicine! The College of Charleston was planning to implement onerous rules on unvaccinated students, like mandatory COVID testing protocols.
Students and parents fought back and speaking out can make a difference!
After receiving a large volume of complaints, the South Carolina Attorney General told the school to case and desist both direct and indirect violations of the State’s prohibition on vaccine passports.
FITSNews reports: “In a letter to CofC president Andrew Hsu dated July 6, 2021, [Attorney General] Wilson wrote that the school’s policies ‘could be read to imply that an unvaccinated student (who) refuses to participate in a survey and monthly testing protocols may be subject to a reprimand, the harshness of which is unclear.'”
“It is a well understood principle of law that what cannot be done directly, likewise, cannot be done indirectly either,” writes AG Wilson, reiterating that heavy handed rules for unvaccinated students likely constitute a defacto vaccine mandate contrary to South Carolina law.
