Appeals court sides with IU on vaccine policy


(WEHT) – The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals is allowing Indiana University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement to stand.

Indiana University is requiring all students and employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine before the fall semester. The university is allowing certain exceptions for medical or religious reasons.

A group of eight students sued to block the mandate, alleging that it violated their constitutional rights. The lawyer for the eight students will ask the Supreme Court to weigh in.
