Indiana University announced to students and staff that as soon as the flu vaccine they are purchasing arrives, all will be required to have it. IU plans to offer their flu vaccine when available or allow flu vaccines given from private industry, such as CVS, Walgreens, etc. At this point in time, IU has not mentioned allowing any exemptions.
Purdue announced in May 2020 that all students and staff would be required to get flu vaccines. However, Purdue President Mitch Daniels announced that there are exemptions including personal beliefs. IU has not done that.
Please contact Indiana University President McRobbie and Provost Lauren Robel to tell them to offer exemptions. The Provost is very important to contact, because McRobbie is retiring at the end of this year. Tell them you disagree with a flu vaccine requirement and DEMAND personal, religious, and medical exemptions.
