A vocal advocate for patients’ rights is applauding Louisiana’s attorney general for pushing back on a demand for mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations at LSU by advising the university federal law mandates the freedom to reject the jab.
“It’s good to see a high legal official standing up and telling them that their rights are protected,” Twila Brase says of Attorney General Jeff Landry’s letter to LSU’s interim president.
In the letter to Thomas Galligan, Landry says the university’s students and staff are “protected” from a mandatory vaccine under a federal law that stipulates the legal right to refuse the jab if it involves a medical product designated for emergency use through the FDA.
The attorney general specifically cited a federal code, which can be read here, which addresses Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) that is approved by the FDA. According to the law, emergency approval comes with the stipulation that intended recipients of the medical product have the legal right to accept it or to refuse it.
“FDA has an obligation to ensure that recipients of the vaccine under an EUA are informed,” the letter states, “that they have the option to accept or refuse the vaccine.”
According to various media outlets in the state, approximately 77% of LSU faculty and staff were vaccinated by the end of the May, but faculty voted 52-1 recently to require vaccinations of everyone.
WBRZ, an ABC News affiliated, reported June 1 the mandatory vaccines now look in doubt after LSU received Landry’s letter and is now reviewing the “legal aspects” he raised.
Beyond the legal issue facing the university, the attorney general also raised the issue of religious objections to the vaccine and also noted the concerns by some over the possible long-term effects of the emergency-approved vaccine.
Brase, a registered nurse, formed Citizens Council for Health Freedom when the Affordable Care Act was being written to warn the public about government intrusion into their personal, private lives. In recent months, she has been warning that mandatory COVID-19 vaccines crossed that legal and ethical boundary, too.
“This is good for the people of Louisiana,” Brase tells One News Now, “but it’s also an example for what every other attorney general in the United States should do for the people of their state.”

The faculty voted 52-1 to require the experimental biologic agent for all students. That’s a good enough reason to exit LSU. Another glaring example of the communist overtake of out education system. Freedom of choice? Not in our communist universities.
ALL parents should then vote, WITH THEIR CHECK BOOKS, to cease PAYING for their kids to GO to LSU..
ANd expand that to boosters.
Good for Attorney General Jeff Landry’ for standing up for what is right.
Yeah, something to use to fight against the tyrany of the new administration and people who are afraid little sheeple.
WE need more courts to rule the same… UNLIKE out in CA, where they ruled the OPPOSITE, that businesses CAN MANDATE their wokers get vaccinated, or get fired..
It is impossible for anyone who receives this ‘vaccine’ to have informed consent. It was not tested fully, the control group was given the jab part way through the testing that was done effectively making sure their was no control group, the approval for it was only on an emergency basis, and manufacturers were exempted from liability for any and all adverse side effects.
Should the FDA approve any vaccines this summer it will be a political not scientific move as the vaccine has not undergone the usual length of testing (five years) nor do they have a control group which is standard scientific method.
It is good to see some states protecting and supporting their citizens. I wonder if in ten years time we won’t see ads on late night tv “Were you or someone you loved forced to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in order to go to school or work? If so, you might be eligible for compensation from that entity. Call us at …”
Which is why i LAUGH at all these ‘Vaccine incentive plans”.. IF THE VACCINE IS SO GOOD FOR US, we shouldn’t be needing to get “incentiviesed” to get the shot…
BRAVO for our freedom to choose and to protecting our kids–at least the ones that don’t view the vax as another facebook fad. Texas and Florida are two of the very few that have brains & balls.
PITY there’s no vaccine against liberalism, THAT WE COULD FORCE ON these woke professors!
