About 200 people from Turning Point USA (TPUSA), the New York Young Republican Club, the Long Island Loud Majority and surrounding community members gathered around the fountain at the Academic Mall on Sunday, Sept. 12, to protest mandatory vaccines.
The Stony Brook chapter of Turning Point USA will be holding an anti-mandatory vaccine protest on Sept. 12, from 3 to 4 p.m. The protest is expected to take place on West Campus, but the exact location is still to be determined.
Students and faculty at Stony Brook University are required to meet their respective COVID-19 vaccine and testing requirements for the 2021 in-person fall semester, according to the Stronger Together website.
Stony Brook University is now offering students the opportunity to get the one-shot Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at the Student Union. Those who have received another vaccine are not allowed to receive the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
