2 Students Sue Santa Clara U Over Vaccine Policy

March 9, 2022

Two students have sued Santa Clara University, a private university in California, over its requirements that they be completely vaccinated, including a booster, by March 17, KTVU News reported.

“We’re at school. We’re learning. We’re trying to pass chemistry and be with our friends and have fun. And make mistakes. And instead we’re having to worry about the validity and our college careers being put in jeopardy,” said Harlow Glen, one of the students.

She and fellow student Jackson Druker are recent transfers to Santa Clara.

They filed a lawsuit against Santa Clara over its vaccination policy. They claim negligence, breach of contract and infliction of emotional distress for the university’s adding a vaccination deadline next week after it had collected tuition for the current semester.

Glen said she had a reaction to the first dose of the vaccine. Druker took two rounds of the vaccine and doesn’t want a booster.

A university spokeswoman said, “Santa Clara University has no comment at the moment.”
