George Mason University professor sues school over it’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate

A law professor at George Mason University in Virginia is filing a lawsuit against the school for mandating COVID vaccines, making the argument that he is immune to COVID and has the natural antibodies.

Todd Zywicki says this will be his 24th year teaching at Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington. Despite his hesitancy to get the COVID vaccine, Zywicki is anything but an ‘anti-vaxxer’. He says, “I’ve had COVID, I’ve lived through COVID,” Zywicki said. “It was scary, it was scary for my family, and I don’t want to get COVID again. I am not cavalier about this. If the vaccine had been around last year, March 2020, I would’ve gotten the vaccine.”

The professor got COVID last March when the pandemic was still in its infancy. He said that he regularly gets tested for antibodies and is still ‘immune’ to the virus. “This is the decision that I made with my immunologist,” Zywicki said. “And I think that this is a decision that is best made by each person, especially in a situation like this where it’s clear that my immune protection is very high.”

Per a Fox News report, “His lawsuit comes as the CDC says COVID reinfections among the unvaccinated are twice as likely than those who are vaccinated. It also comes as the U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to rule on vaccine mandates for the first time.”
