“I feel that Grambling forcing us to get vaccinated is just the same as any other vaccination required for school. However, I understand why people are contemplating it because there isn’t much reliable research on it. Not only that, but the vaccine has not even been available for a year yet. We do not know how it will affect us in the long run.”

“So, I believe the vaccine should have been a choice. I feel as if you should decide whether you want to protect yourself or not rather than making it mandatory and ripping others from their own decisions.”
“The vaccine is a tough topic that has many stereotypes surrounding it. But in my opinion Grambling is doing the right thing by making it an order to get it to be able to reside on campus. Their main goal is to keep us all safe and if the vaccine gets us there, I see no problem.”
"I am already vaccinated but, I feel as if getting vaccinated should be by choice instead of it being required. Yes, the vaccine can help us stay safer but if they don’t want to get vaccinated then they shouldn’t force it. Some people don’t trust the vaccine & don’t know how it may affect them. Vaccinated or not, you can still get Covid so either way is a risk."
"I think the GSU administration mandating vaccines on campus is the right decision. No matter how you individually feel about the vaccine they have been approved by the FDA as being effective and safe for the human body. The school cannot force anyone to get the vaccine but to stay on campus it is a requirement I believe to help us get closer to normalcy. I myself am already vaccinated and can’t wait for more chances to interact with the student body."
