“Vaccines Mandates: A Fight in a Fight”

According to the White House, vaccine mandates “will ensure that we are using every available tool to combat COVID-19 and save even more lives in the months ahead, while also keeping schools open and safe, and protecting our economy from lockdowns and damage.” Yet, to some, mandates are immoral, unlawful, and un-American. Come learn more about the debate and join in the discussion!

Discussion led by Legal Studies Prof. Andrea Boggio, with real-time information assistance from Krupp Librarians
