George Mason University, Virginia Tech and the University of Mary Washington are dropping vaccine mandates after the new Virginia Attorney General, Jason Miyares, issued an opinion declaring the mandates illegal: “Virginia‚Äôs public institutions of higher education are public corporations,” Miyares wrote. “As such, they are afforded separate corporate status but remain under control of the General Assembly and may only exercise such powers as the General Assembly has expressly conferred or necessarily implied.”
