Parents and students are still battling college vaccination mandates across the country more than three years into the pandemic.
Kristina Kristen, whose son attends the University of California at Irvine, is one such parent. Even though her son was granted a religious exemption from the warrant, she said she was still “concerned” about the unknowns surrounding the shooting.
She joined “Fox & Friends First” on Wednesday to discuss her angst over potential long-term side effects from the vaccine and her broader review of the mandate.

“I’m very concerned about the… long-term effects of these vaccines only the… devastating effects of the immediate and short-term effects of vaccines,” Kristen told co-host Todd Piro on Wednesday. “Clearly there may very well be unknown potential long-term dangers downstream such as cancer or cancers or autoimmune issues etc., so this is uncharted territory.”
“They are creating a laboratory of guinea pigs by having our students take these shots without knowing the long-term effects,” she continued.
According to No College Mandates, there are at least 800 colleges that require the primary COVID vaccine, at least 250 that require a booster shot, and at least 25 that require a bivalent shot.
The bivalent vaccine is an “updated” vaccine that encompasses both strains of the original COVID virus and its evolved version omicron, according to the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
“We have to emphasize that COVID injections do not stop transmission or infection,” Kristen said. “Therefore, they serve no public health purpose, period, and that fact was known to vaccine makers early on through their trials.”

She said vaccine makers “never tested for transmission”, accusing them of skewing their rate of effectiveness in order to promote vaccines.
“Now with a plethora of data, that’s actually not the case, they’re not 95% effective, far from it,” Kristen said. “The question, the million dollar question is why do they keep imposing these vaccines as mandates on students?”
Lucia Sinatra, co-founder of No College Mandates said she still hasn’t received clear answers from college officials as to why some are still requiring students to get the vaccine to take classes on campus.

“We tried to reach the administrators,” Sinatra said Wednesday. “We tried to convince the students to put off this problem. We hit a brick wall.” she said, adding that schools typically respond with “standard language” about how COVID vaccines will protect the community.
