Indiana University was sued by eight students who said its COVID-19 vaccination requirements violated the “14th Amendment, which includes the right to personal autonomy and physical integrity, and the right to refuse medical treatment, and the state of Indiana’s recently passed vaccine passport law”, Indianapolis Star Report.
This requirement, which applies to all IU campuses, was revised after the State Attorney General issued an objection. This requirement is in place, but students no longer need to submit documents to prove that they have been vaccinated.
University spokesperson Chuck Carney said: “The university is confident that it will win in this situation.” “After the Indiana Attorney General’s comments, we changed the process and no longer need to upload a vaccination certificate. The opinion of the attorney general confirms our right to request vaccinations.”
