826 religious exemptions granted for students not wanting COVID vaccine at one university

Many employees are fighting for their right to avoid vaccines with religious exemptions, and now students are doing the same.

The University of Illinois requires students to have the vaccine, but now students are requesting exemptions for medical or religious reasons.

They need to go online to fill out a form and email it.

The form asks students and staff for a description of why they cannot get the vaccine if it’s for religious reasons.

By Wednesday night, the Dean of Students reported 838 religious exemption requests from students, and 826 were granted the exemption.

12 were denied because it was clear that there was not a specific conflict or they needed to apply for the medical exemption.

At least half the students said their beliefs stem from abortion and the use of aborted fetal cell lines used in vaccines. The others said their bodies were a temple of God, they believe in natural healing, or didn’t want toxins in their bodies.

84 students requested medical exemptions and 63 were granted them.
