Congressman Bob Good (VA-05) has introduced the No Vaccine Mandates in Higher Education Act, to prohibit federal funding from going to colleges and universities that impose COVID-19 vaccine mandates on their students or staff.

“Taxpayer dollars should not flow to entities that coerce people into taking a COVID-19 shot,” said Rep. Good. “My legislation is an important effort in safeguarding personal freedoms and ensuring educational institutions prioritize instructing students and preparing them for the workforce. All Americans have a fundamental right to make medical decisions for themselves and schools across the country need to respect that.”

President Biden declared the COVID-19 pandemic over earlier this year and the Public Health Emergency officially ended on May 11, 2023. Many states have already rescinded COVID-19 vaccine mandates for college students. Unfortunately, nearly 100 universities across the nation still require a COVID-19 vaccine to attend in the 2023 school year, and some even announced unscientific mask mandates to start their school year.
