Court Upholds College’s Vaccination Requirement Over Free Exercise Challenge

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

“In George v. Kankakee Community College, 2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 160737 (CD IL, Nov. 17, 2014), an Illinois federal district court adopted a magistrate’s recommendations (2014 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 161379, Oct. 27, 2014) and dismissed a  paramedic student’s claim that his free exercise and privacy rights were infringed when he was precluded from taking a clinical class required for his degree. Nicholas George was not permitted to enroll because he refused on religious grounds to comply with the vaccination requirements that were imposed by the hospital conducting the class.  The court held that the hospital’s policy was generally applicable  and neutral. The court also remanded to state court plaintiff’s state law claims. ”
