Is COVID-19 “vaccine uptake” in postsecondary education a “problem”? A critical policy inquiry

Postsecondary institutions have strongly promoted use of the COVID-19 genetic vaccines by their students, often through mandates. There has been a call within the academic literature to monitor vaccine uptake amongst these students. Dr. Claudia Chaufan has performed a critical analysis of the academic literature noting its conclusions reflect “scientific consensus” while  hardly acknowledging the contradictory medical evidence, ethical considerations, and risk-benefit analysis for this age group. She explains the impact of the shift towards consensus-based policy by the very institutions that should be promoting critical thinking, quality research, and ethical practice.
