Chico State Students Suing CSU System Over Required Vaccinations

Three students at Chico State are suing the CSU system for requiring them to get vaccinated before returning to class.

The Sacramento Bee is reporting the three students got the virus and recovered, so they say they no longer need to get the vaccine. Representatives from CSU say they are working on an exemption policy and cannot mandate shots until one or more of the vaccines gains full approval by the FDA. Federal and state officials have repeatedly said the vaccines are safe and that their distribution nationwide has largely staved off spikes in infections and allowed for states to reopen after more than a year of protests over restrictions that include mandatory face coverings, social distancing and other precautions.

The suit asks for a court-ordered injunction that would stop CSU from requiring vaccines to attend class.
