The “No Forced Vax” campaign will be launched across its network of over 2,500 high school and university chapters, helping students make their own decision when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine.
The campaign will include chapter gatherings, tabling events and a digital campaign to educate and embolden local health care officials, teachers, administrators, students and parents to defend the right of choice.
“I’m not anti-COVID vaccination, and I’m not pro-COVID vaccination – I’m vaccine agnostic,” Kirk said in a statement. “But I am 100% against mandating the COVID vaccination. At its core, this issue is not about the vaccine. This is about freedom and information. No person should be forced to get the vaccine against their will or hindered in participating in society for not receiving it. It is unacceptable for universities to coerce the most low-risk group of people in the country, students, to get an experimental vaccine just to be eligible for in-person learning. This is a false choice, and it’s time America’s students had someone in their corner fighting for their freedom to choose.”
