Dr. Julie Ponesse speaks at Western U rally opposing booster mandates

Dr. Julie Ponesse joined students opposing COVID-19 booster mandates.


Western University announced its booster mandate on August 22, 2022, just two weeks shy of the beginning of the school year, putting many students in a difficult position, potentially jeopardizing their academic year.

On Saturday, August 27, 2022, I spoke at a rally at Western U opposing their newly imposed three-dose COVID-19 booster mandate.

This was my first back on the campus since I was fired last year for questioning and refusing to comply with the university's COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
