Justice Barrett denies IU vaccine mandate injunction


(WEHT) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amey Coney Barrett denied a request to block Indiana University’s vaccine mandate.

IU is requiring students and staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine before returning to campus. Eight students filed for an emergency injunction to block the mandate.
