Isn't this the same AG that fired attorneys at a couple of the state colleges because they supported mask mandates?  Yeah, Virginia picked a winner

Because those vaccine requirements were mandated by the Virginia state legislature, COVID hasn't.  You can't fault the man for wanting the legislature to do its damn job.

Democrats failed to stop a reich wing lunatic from buying his way into the governor's mansion. We know there are enough of them to have done it if they wanted.

I feel that at this point in history if you elect a republican governor or have a republican controlled congress their first order of business will be to change the laws so that the state will always be republican.

Its the fault of the DNC in that they did ne t to nothing to fight the bombardment of bullshiat that came from the Youngkin campaign.

I know Terry McAuliffe was a weak candidate.  He made quite a few unforced errors and he's a Clintonite.  Is this what you really wanted though Virginia?  Did you really think Youngkin was a reasonable old timey republican?

His legal reasoning is that the state legislature passed a law requiring those but not one requiring Covid-19.

Fine, fine, you assholes should definitely have the liberties and freedumbs to get sick, go bankrupt, or maybe even kill yourselves.  But your dumbass COVID way of doing it makes other people sick, bankrupt, or even dead.  So why are your liberties and freedumbs more important than anybody elses?  Just eat a gun like a real manly gun-owning man!

The fact that people aren't running screaming from the Republican Party at the polls, allowing farkwits like this to get into power, after watching their behavior for the last however many years, can only mean that there are enough people awful enough to want things to be this way. And they're too large a percentage for American society to survive or recover from. The U.S. is a zombie nation, shuffling along mindlessly toward its own decomposition.

Colleges in every state have mandated proof of vaccinated status various infectious diseases for a long time now. Why is COVID-19 different? Are you trying to weaponize potentially infected status in some perverse turf war? Because the only other alternative is that you are criminally stupid and should be spending your days re-treading tires.

I did. The ag claims the legislature hasn't passed a law mandating covid vaccines but it has passed legislation on the other vaccines but doesn't reference a specific statute.  Hence the question, got a Virginia state law citation to back that claim up?

Mrtraveler01 I made the mistake of overestimating the intelligence of the electorate in Virginia and thought they would be able to see past Youngkin's "fake moderate" shtick.

It seems like some of them were just looking for a reason.  McAuliffe gave them one when he botched the question about parents having a role in their kids education.  Up till then I thought he might squeak by.  Even after that I thought who can't see the republican is a complete phony?

I overestimated those voters too.

I've been thinking the same thing. Why on earth is this one vaccine a problem? I wasn't allowed in grade school in the 80s unless I had been vaccinated for a bunch of shiat. Military people have to get vaccinated for a bunch of shiat if they have to go overseas.

Because those vaccines haven't been politicized...yet.

The people the most vocal about being against COVID-19 vaccines are against all vaccines completely.

That was the only part of his campaign he got right.

Parents are idiots, and should not be dictating that schools lie to their children because their religious and/or bigoted beliefs demand it happen.

Miyares noted that while the state legislature has enacted laws requiring immunizations for diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, German measles and mumps before students can enroll in a college or university, it has not passed a law requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for enrollment.

Just go fark yourself!  I hope all you MAGA antivaxx assholes die.  Seriously.  So tired of this childish shiat.  You are the worst of humanity.

Thank goodness for people with brains.

Brian Coy, a spokesperson for the University of Virginia, said the school is reviewing the opinion from Miyares, but did not comment on whether university officials will consider ending the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for students. Coy noted that 99% of the school's students are vaccinated and boosted.

These folks won't be happy until that 30% morbidity we had for children under five before vaccines is a thing again.  Conservatives: let's make being a parent a crap shoot whether they live or die.
