All across America universities are announcing another end to in-person classes over the mostly asymptomatic Omicron variant of COVID-19. Despite many of these colleges mandating students are fully vaccinated, and some even mandating the booster shot, students across the country will be forced to pay thousands of dollars in tuition and housing to simply sit behind a screen on a Zoom call.
This claim has even been re-asserted by the left’s favorite bureaucrat, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who said that the variant is almost certainly less severe than others. Despite this, many colleges, such as Duke University, responded by mandating that students must be triple vaccinated (2 shots and a booster) in order to attend class. According to Duke, “getting the booster can help protect you, your friends, and your colleagues and ensure that our hospital is available.” However, there is hardly any science to back this claim, considering that a Columbia University study recently found that the Omicron variant is ‘markedly resistant’ to both vaccines and boosters.
