It is unconstitutional, goes against our non-derogable rights, its medical appartheid and terranical victimization at its best.

Mandatory vaccinations in Universities
A mandatory vaccine policy at UCT or any other university is completely unacceptable any circumstances, much less so for our current one.

The policy in question would serve to deny our youth education, because they do not want to get an ineffective injection that does not serve them or their interests.

Let us be clear, the young people that have died of covid alone in this country and others is a very small statistic. Healthy, young people do not need a covid vaccine.

It should be not even be mandatory it for those most at risk, merely advised.

There is a shocking lack of transparency regarding trial data and it is irresponsible of the university to mandate any vaccine for its students. We do not know what the long term effects are. Never mind the horrible adverse reactions which people have had to them.

Even if we disregard what I have written above, it has to be acknowledged that the vaccines are no longer effective, if they ever were. Why should students take something that will not protect them, not stop them from transmitting the disease and not even bring back some sort of normalcy?

The universities who are implementing it claim that is for the good of the institutions, for the students and staff, but if that were the case; where is the exemption for natural immunity? Better yet, where are the mandates for general fitness and health?

The universities in question are implementing this for reasons which they cannot even defend, it is just because they said so.

All this and then comes the question of funding and ties to certain corporations and corrupt governmental agencies. I will not even elaborate, I encourage those interested to look into it, and I wonder why some people are so shameless.

Then comes my advice to those who do not support this, do not comply. Try your luck with an exemption and if that fails, legal action. Go to SAUS or other student unions and make your case. Protest and help protect those even younger than us. If needs be, go to a university that has not implemented a policy of the sort.

This is a rabbit hole, what other draconian requirements can be enforced if this is?
The more people that comply, the more likely it is to work. I speak to vaccinated students and staff too when I say that.

This is going to be another disaster in South African tertiary education, again caused by idiotic and impractical policies by those who presuppose they doing it for the “greater good”.

Our universities have shifted from institutions of learning, to institutions of propaganda and compliance.

The university may dismiss the above, but the youth will never forget what it wishes it impose.

I choose to write under a pseudonym for I know that the above will be used against me, were it under my name.

Experimental “vaccines” need to stop now. They are against the law ( see the Nuremberg Code) and are damaging our health. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to have these substances injected into their bodies.

I don’t feel you should be mandated to take an experimental product that has many side effects. It should be freedom of choice.

It is not your choice. These are you clients. You don’t dictate what they should do With their bodies. Respect their choices.

There is overwhelming data noting that
(1) vaccinated people carry and transmit covid 19 equally strongly as unvaccinated people.
(2) young people under 40 with no comorbidities have a higher risk of a serious adverse reaction to the vaccine then they do to covid.

Furthermore anyone who chooses to get vaccinated should be able to - if the vaccines work they will be protected.

The vaccine offers limited benefit and some studies indicate that having natural immunity(anti-bodies) is more effective and lasts longer and is also more effective against different variants (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-04060-7). If we pit the amount of Covid deaths against the amount of deaths caused by the common flu yearly Covid deaths are less, but we are not forced to isolate, quarintine or get a vaccine. If the vaccine was so effective why would it matter who gets vaccinated and who doesn't. If you choose to get vaccinated that is your choice if you choose not to that is your choice.

My next point is on our constitution which took years to be created and was created specifically with equality and fairness in mind. When we start limiting peoples rights due to their choices or beliefs, no matter the scenario, we are going down a very slippery slope. In this regard we can look at it from another angle as well, we could say that the people that die from Covid normally has an underlying co-morbidity like being overwieght, high blood pressure or diabetes and therefore everyone that does not exercise, and does eat sugar and fatty foods will not be allowed out of the house, because they are at risk.

Finally our bodies are so extremely well designed that it can sort out most medical issues, bar trauma's off course, it is the only thing that can prevent or cure a virus and this is medically known.

It all comes down to the right to choose. Each person should be allowed to choose whether they go or don't go for the vaccine. Each shop and restaurant owner can choose who they serve vaccinated or unvaccinated, but the blanket judgement taken by government, even though initially was a good response, now that we have more data should seriously be reconsidered. Finally power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, please be wary of this age old saying.

I do feel that it should be compulsory as the young generation can be very foolish and unwise when they have big g2g and party as if there is no covid...I myself are in healthcare and definitely don't ever want to go through what had to with covid
