In response to the PCIC Action Alert:
I am the spouse of a Penn State employee and the parent of a Penn State student and I write to ask that Penn State does not impose a vaccine mandate on Penn State students and employees regarding the gene therapy injections designed for Covid-19.
I oppose mandates even if the FDA grants full authorization to the mRNA injections, because even with FDA-endorsement, the long-term effects of these novel medical treatments will not be known for ten to 20 years.
I have been very grateful for Penn State administrators’ recent strong moral leadership: protecting the human rights of all Penn State employees and students to have medical privacy and to make choices about medical treatments based on principles of informed consent, bodily integrity and individualized risk-benefit assessments, without the coercion of threatened loss of education and employment.
I know that the counter-pressure on administrators to take a coercive approach and threaten students’ education and employees’ jobs has been extremely heavy.
Please continue to uphold these important ethical principles and do not impose a vaccine mandate.
