Stockton Students Must Get Vaccinated, But Teachers and Staff Can Decline Vax.

Stockton vaccine

Nicholas Carlson is a Stockton University Senior. He’s thinks President Harvey Kesselman shouldn’t force students to get vaccinated. Especially since Stockton teachers and staff are NOT mandated to get a shot for Covid-19.

Here are excerpts from an open letter to Stockton:

On May 5, 2021, I was informed by a concerned student peer about Stockton University’s decision to enforce mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for the Fall 2021 semester.

The purpose of this letter isn’t to be anti-vaccine, rather it is to question the university’s choice to forcibly mandate the vaccine in order to continue student enrollment at Stockton University.

Force an experimental vaccine on students body only adds to fear and discomfort.

It is common knowledge that COVID-19 vaccines are experimental, not a single vaccine is FDA approved. Vaccines are only “authorized” by the CDC and FDA for emergency use.

Reverse Stockton University’s Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement Sign the online petition.

There are potential serious side effects that can be attributed from taking this vaccine, as the several deaths from the Johnson & Johnson vaccine can attest to.

The university is forcing students to get the vaccine, but only “highly recommending” it to faculty and staff.


The university is deliberately illustrating the action of taking the COVID-19 vaccine to be a glorious act of societal righteousness, even going as far to post an image with the university’s mascot wearing a shirt saying, “Be an Inspiration, Get Vaccinated.”

This is a serious decision that a student should come to their own conclusion on with their family and doctor.

The right to a quality education should not play a role in deciding upon whether a person should receive an emergency vaccination.

I plead with the University and President Kesselman to leave the choice of COVID-19 vaccinations with the individual students and not jeopardize a person’s education over their right to choose not to receive an experimental vaccine.

If you believe Stockton University should reverse the COVID-19 vaccine mandate on its student body, please sign this petition.

Thank you,

Nicholas R. Carlson, Stockton University Senior

Public Comment on Stockton Mandated Vaccine Rules

denise m: Stockton is being hypocritical by not making this mandatory for teachers and staff.

Debby N: You’re violating HIPAA laws. Public education should be available to everyone.

Michelle S: I believe people have the right to choose for themselves whether they want to take this experimental vaccine. My body my choice . No one should be forced to take it. Especially young people who are low risk of dying from Covid and have not had children yet.

Maria R My body my choice! My daughter will be a sophomore at Stockton in the Fall and she should have the right to decide if she wants to have an experimental drug injected into her.

Patricia B We do not know the long term effects of this vaccine. This mandate is taking away my daughter’s right to make a choice for her own body. I do not understand how this is legal to mandate the students to take this vaccine.

Pamela P It’s illegal! It’s not FDA approved. How dare these colleges jeopardize the health of our children. Check the out the CDC website and see the horrific side effects and deaths of teenagers after taking the shot! They have no right to do this! My body my right!

Lisa G We should not be forced to take an experimental drug that has had a terrible track record when tested on animals in the past. This vaccine does not protect or prevent you from getting or giving COVID-19 to someone. Taking this should be a personal choice, I believe the Nuremberg law protects us from being forced to take experimental vaccines.

Marguerite P I don’t believe that any university should be mandating this vaccine! It’s not even a vaccine. It’s a gene therapy with no long-term safety record. Students should be given the choice just like faculty and staff are!

Sheila R You don’t get to decide my daughters health now & for the future.

Jean D: You do not have the right to decide what people do with their body. This is ridiculous when the vaccine is classified as for “emergency use”. They do not know the side effects down the line in years to come.

  1. Big Brother Again! Enough and enough with this vaccine! This is a free country. You have the right to do what you want with your body. Your medical information is private and should remain that way. The main stream one sided bigoted media only tells their version. Do you truly believe they are concerned with your welfare? These are young healthy adults. They should not be controlled by FEAR as most people are in this country. It is a very very powerful weapon. History can confirm this.

  2. If I heard correctly, colleges can’t legally mandate anyone to receive these vaccinations. The reason behind this belief, is that these vaccinations were approved under emergency circumstances. They met the criteria as of this moment, for a “regular” approval through the (Food & Drug Administration) F.D.A..

    Bravo Nicholas.
    Why force a vaccine upon young adults when the older population is more at risk? What is the hidden agenda? For a virus that has a 99%+ survival rate!
    This vaccine is rushed and targets mRNA, new territory. I am old enough to have witnessed the birth defects caused by Thalidomide, the wonder drug of the 1950s. I had a college friend that nearly died after the 1976 flu vaccine. Medical science is often wrong.

  4. Like everything else going on it’s all about “control”. Do as I say , not as I do. The suppression of individual liberty. At the same time VACCINATED teachers Union members throughout the country refuse to go back to work and teach children who are losing valuable months of education. I have to believe that most individual teachers are still honorable and worthy of respect but the unions and higher-ups have a different agenda.
    Kudos to the students and their families for standing up against this attack on their individual rights. They are an example for the rest of us.

    1. As it was said on Mark Levin tonight w/ Candace Owens…..Step brave. Stand up to the radical left. Hit them where it hurts…Pull you kids from schools and universities who are stealing our civil liberties. Speak out about the left side heavy media. If the people don’t take action for fear we’ll lose our country. As it is happening right now.

      Biden troop pull out is the beginning of another war. Shutting down pipelines is Biden and his crimnal family’s personal business relationship with China….Read about CEFCO and the Bidens. This Colonial Pipeline hack came from China w/ Biden’s signature on the dotted line.

  5. Bottom line – no one should be forced to take an experimental vaccination in order to receive an education. Young healthy adults are at an extremely low risk. I hope the college students protest and stick up for their rights. We must speak up and stop illegal use of power & control. Why are they pushing this vaccine so hard? There’s more to this then the public knows. Time will tell. Truth will prevail.

  6. The University should require that either everybody be vaccinated students, teachers and workers or nobody get it

  7. It’s people like Laura that are holding the economy from recovering. These vaccines are SAVING LIVES and in turn will save business.

  8. Glenn L. Silverstein Ph. D.

    The vaccine is not experimental and this has nothing to do with politics. Do you bitch this much about wearing shoes? Seatbelts? So stop being a mouthpiece for nonhealth professionals.

    1. Why do you care if I wear shoes or I wear my seatbelt ? Shoes and seatbelts are not something that gets injected into my healthy body. We do not know the truth and we might not ever.

  9. It is not people like Laura who is holding back the economy. Who closed the country down and the schools and made ridiculous mandates? Yes, this is an experimental so called “vaccine”. It does not fit the medical definition of one. If people are vaccinated, why do they wear masks and have mandates? When all other true tested vaccines are given, no such mandates are in effect. Doesn’t that tell you something? These injections have not been tested for long term effects. The government and the far left media have control by FEAR. This is America. You have free choice on your body and it is no one’s business. Do your research on these factors.

  10. We all in some way subscribe to other people’s ideas & belief systems. Most are meant to keep us divided and polarized. There’s your truth, my truth and the truth.

    Regardless if this vaccine is experimental or not, it should be the choice of the individual.

  11. What happened to “my body my choice”? Everyone should have the right to decide if they want to be vaccinated for this. This vaccination is not proven and not enough data collected to know the long term effects
