    Supreme Court rejects challenge to Indiana University's vaccination requirement”

    Indiana just one of close to seven hundred colleges requiring proof of vaccination (https://www.chronicle.com/blogs/live...ainst-covid-19), in New York, one needs proof of vaccination for indoor dining or to visit a gym, nationwide employers are beginning to do the same as a requirement for employment, public events as sport games and entertainment venues are sure to be next

    Overdue, long overdue, about time the obstinate unvaccinated stay home while the rest of us enjoy life

    Thx ACEY BEE...

    A challenge to the policy was directed to Amy Coney Barrett, the justice in charge of that region of the country, who denied it.

    It was pretty much decided in the lower Court, all she did was concur with their reasoning which was based upon an early 20th Century case over mandatory smallpox vaccinations

    Proof of vaccination is a good concept. But it is the easiest thing to fake. Google image + card stock + inkjet printer = 'proof' of vaccination. The cards have no onboard security features whatsoever. The only way to validate a card is to submit the info to a state or federal EHR database and wait sometimes weeks for a response. Bars and gyms are sure as hell not going to do this, and I wonder how many schools would take the time to do it either.

    This is just yet another example of the incompetence of government. Instead of printing 5 TRILLION new dollars to spread around and fk us all with inflation, they should have converted a few US currency mints to make vaccine cards that way they could have had security features like we have in money and then spreadneck antimasker pukes couldn't just print one up at home.

    We have all the vaccination info on a program called AIR

    https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/individuals/services/medicare/australian-immunisation-register

    That is because no one can remember when they last had a shot :p

    I believe that she declined to review the case. So far, there are not published reasons for having done so. There is a good case to be made that this is a state issue that wouldn't be appropriate for the SCOTUS to decide or make a determination of.

    Certainly not going to be foolproof, and hopefully nothing permanent, but intended to send the message

    She consulted with the lower Court and concurred with their opinion, based on an early 20th Century suit regarding mandatory smallpox vaccinations

    This is a duplicate thread.

    If it was a Constitutional issue, they would have reviewed it, but since it is not, they declined it. Ironically the students who complained, are exempt from the mandate anyway.

    Yea we should be sending messages that spreadnecks that want to be a determent to society aren't welcome in society but basing a system of proof on something that has literally no security features whatsoever is just moronic. Worst part is I don't think it will ever get fixed. Republican politicians don't want vaccine cards because they either believe COVID is a myth or that people have a 'right' to infect, and Democrats don't want to venture in the realm of secure identification on this because it would demonstrate how effective the practice is and bugger up their arguments against voting laws that would do the same. Its amazing that in all the trillions we spent and will continue to spend on managing this pandemic that we haven't gotten anything better than freakin dollar store index cards.

    Drama. Humans have been and will continue to infect each other with whatever is going around.

    Yea yea but at what point in the past could we ever say humans tried to associate spreading infection with a 'right' or 'freedom'? AFAIK that's never happened on a scale like what we see today.

    “Supreme Court rejects challenge to Indiana University's vaccination requirement”

    Since the rest of government isn't paying any attention to the science, I would expect the same from the supreme court.
