Although courts have ruled in favor of states when public health is involved, some students assert that they have a constitutional right to attend college in person and unvaccinated (“Universities Face Student Lawsuits Over Covid-19 Vaccine Mandate,” The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 7).
I hope they lose. They have a civic duty to get vaccinated despite what they argue. If they want to refuse lifesaving medical treatment for themselves, that’s one thing, but it’s quite another when their refusal poses a threat to others.
